As Lyssa sails away from Greece with its ancient past she is also leaving behind her personal past and facing an uncertain future. It is this journey into the unknown that the reader is invited to share. From the beginning our sympathies are with this young woman who could be any one of us, with her uncertainties and background of broken hopes. Cleverly the author reveals glimpses of Lyssa’s past life: her loss of a loved father, her reliance on a schoolfriend for the sympathy and understanding she lacks at home and a mother who is too involved in her own life to take much interest in her daughter. It is while Lyssa is moving away from Greece these flashbacks to the past occur, so there is a sense of past and present being concurrent. With this knowledge we are prepared for what will take place in Lyssa’s life. In a very real sense we are shown that it is impossible to break entirely from the past, that it will always have a bearing on the present and the future. Lyssa’s old life impinges on the new and she has difficulty ridding herself of prejudices that are the result of her unfortunate marriage. Also the ties of a friendship with its roots in the past have a strong hold on her and she finds it difficult to break free from this smothering affection. This is a fascinating study of a woman who in order to embrace her future has to leave much of her past behind her.
After a failed marriage in Greece, Lyssa returns to her home in London. She finds that her mother, a once-celebrated actress, is now seriously in debt. When Lyssa begins to look more into this, she becomes involved in the business dealings of best friend Nell and her rival Alex. She is developing feelings towards Alex and his young son, Nicky. Soon Lyssa begins to uncover some unexpected and disturbing facts.
I Liked Lyssa, she is faced with so many decisions. She has her Mother's debt, her pending divorce, then she is torn when it comes to the issue of trust. There are a lot of secrets, loyalties are tested, and Lyssa doesn't know who to trust.
A well written story that kept me up late into the night. The characters are well developed. The plot is original with drama, suspense and secrets. Then add some romance and a nasty divorce making this the perfect all night read. I was so deep into the story that I did not know who to trust, up until the end. I could feel every emotion that Lyssa was felling.
I am a big fan of Lynette Sofras, and In Loving Hate did not disappoint. I highly recommend to those who love a great dramatic/romance. I look forward to reading more of Lynette's work.
