WIN 1 of 5 copies of The Love That Remains by Susan Francis, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

An extraordinary memoir about secrets, life’s shocking twists and unconditional love.

How could I write about the importance of truth and not tell the whole truth myself?

After twenty years spent searching for her biological parents, 52-year-old Susan Hull unexpectedly meets the great love of her life – a goldminer named Wayne Francis. He is a gentle giant of a man, who promises Susan the world.

Two years later, they throw in their jobs, marry and sell everything they own, embarking on an incredible adventure, to start a new life in the romantic city of Granada, where they learn Spanish and enjoy too much tapas. In love, and enthralled by the splendour of a European springtime, the pair treasure every moment together.

Until a shocking series of events alters everything.


Riveting, heartfelt and remarkably honest, The Love that Remains explores unconditional love and the lies we tell to safeguard our happiness.
