In the Context of Love
After a devastating family secret derails every aspect of her life she is caught up in a whirlwind of bad decisions and wrong turns. Her journey of self discovery carries her backward as she once again learns to believe in love and the power of redemption.
An intensely charged story about family secrets, love, and lust by debut novelist Linda K. Sienkiewicz.
“With tenderness, but without blinking, Sienkiewicz turns her eye on the predator-prey savannah of the young and still somehow hopeful.”
~ Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the New York Times #1 Bestseller Deep End of the Ocean
“Sienkiewicz’s powerful and richly detailed debut novel is at once a love story, a cautionary tale, and an inspirational journey. In the Context of Love should be required reading for all wayward teenage girls—and their mothers, too.”
~ Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of the National Book Award Finalist American Salvage, and the National Bestseller, Once Upon a River
“Absorbing, heartbreaking, compulsively-readable and insightful, In the Context of Love casts a hypnotic spell. This is story-telling at its best.”
~ Lewis Robinson, author of the critically acclaimed Officer Friendly: and Other Stories, and Water Dogs
“Takes you on a wild roller coaster ride through love’s lowest lows and highest highs, from dark acts of sexual violence to kisses that taste like freedom. In her boldly compelling narrative, Sienkiewicz captures her heroine’s harrowing journey with both compassion and passion…a wise, vivid and vital new voice in fiction.”
~ Elizabeth Searle, author of the Boston Globe Bestseller A Four-Sided Bed
“Sienkiewicz has written a love letter to the wonder and imperfection of everyday life.”
~ Marcy Dermansky, author of the critically acclaimed Twins, and Bad Marie
