Love After Love is the intelligent new novel by Alex Hourston, author of suspense thriller In My House. Her latest work is a nuanced exploration of relationships, human behaviour and modern living, as the central character, a therapist, is faced with her own questions about life and love. The book has received praise for its gripping narrative, with Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat, describing it as ‘A beautifully written page-turner of a book.’
