Divorce and separation are among the greatest traumas we can experience.
Office of National Statistics figures reveal that 42% of marriages end in divorce, half of these within ten years of marriage. By the tenth anniversary of moving in together, almost 40% of cohabiting couples will have separated.
Love Lose Live, a novel by mediator and family lawyer Mary Banham-Hall, is a contemporary and informed observation of divorce and family breakdown seen through the eyes of the Bailey family. The story of separation uncovers the emotional tumult which each character experiences, and along the way there are some unexpected consequences – some bewildering, some desperate, and some hilarious.
The thinking, actions and reasoning of the children and adults alike are carefully conveyed, as is the grief felt as the marriage ends and everyone finally moves towards recovery and new lives.
