The Mathematics of Love
“that rare thing, a book that works on every conceivable level. A real achievement ... Remarkable” - The Times
It is 1819 and Stephen Fairhurst wants only to forget the horrors of Waterloo and remember the great and secret love he lost. But, despite his friendship with the clever Lucy Durward, he cannot tell her about the darkness in his past.
In the summer of 1976 the teenaged Anna, hot, bored and lonely in the Suffolk countryside, becomes entangled in two men's lives: Theo, a photographer in exile, and the forgotten Stephen Fairhurst.
The Mathematics of Love was shortlist for the Commonwealth Writer's Best First Book and the Goss First Novel awards, and longlisted for the RNA Book of the Year and Prince Maurice prizes. It has been translated into many languages. Click the links below to find out more:
