“How could I write about the importance of truth and not tell the whole truth myself?”
This week’s book giveaway is a memoir from Australian author and AWC alumna Susan Francis. Titled The Love That Remains, it’s an extraordinary tale about secrets, life’s shocking twists and unconditional love.
After 20 years spent searching for her biological parents, 52-year-old Susan Hull unexpectedly meets the great love of her life – a gold miner 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.
We have three copies up for grabs. In the book, they learn Spanish – so to be in to win, simply tell us what foreign language YOU would like to learn, and WHY (in 25 words or fewer). If your answer is one of our three favourites, you’ll win a copy of the book!
Entries close midday Monday 6 April, Sydney/Melbourne time.
