Gorgeously written, fascinating and engrossing, THE MATHEMATICS OF LOVE is a sexy, heartbreaking, glorious novel by a soon-to-be major literary star.
Remember this moment. These moments are rare. You are about to discover your favourite book, the book you will give to all your friends, the book that will linger in your thoughts long after you've turned the final page. You are about to discover THE MATHEMATICS OF LOVE.
From the gentle Suffolk countryside to the battlefields of Waterloo and the ports of Spain, this is an extraordinarily moving account of war and the pain of loss, the heat of passion and the redemptive power of love.
