Everything Love Is

A poignant, mysterious and unforgettable story of love, and of the happy endings we conceive for ourselves.

“Wonderful … Unforgettably poignant. Lifeaffirming, loveaffirming, perfect” – Vanessa Gebbie,

“I loved everything about it. One of those books where you have to ration the ending – with beautiful, evocative sentences that float off the page and a story that’s modern and oh so moving” – Paul McVeigh

“This is a deeply moving, beautifully written story about happiness, memory and loss … Claire King’s writing is wise, graceful and a joy to read … It guides without leading; it persuades without explaining” – The Pool, Bedtime Book Club pick by Joanna Cannon

“Claire King has succeeded magnificently with her second novel Everything Love Is. It is a beautifully judged, intricately structured contemplation on memory, love, happiness and loss. An existential exploration of what it means to be human and how to live a contented life, it is, above all, an achingly poignant love story … Intelligent, sensitive and carefully plotted work” – Yorkshire Post
