Book of the Month: Sasha Wasley’s Love Song
There was something about Charlie. Something about the way he questioned and teased her, brought her outside of herself … the way he’d made her crash headlong into love just by singing to her.
At age seventeen, Beth Paterson was determined to study medicine at university, despite the heartache of losing her mother. Tutoring Charlie Campbell worked well with her plan – but falling in love with him sure didn’t, and neither did getting her heart broken when he abruptly left town.
Now Charlie is a big star on the alternative rock scene, while Beth is a respected doctor in her hometown. When Charlie comes back to fight for the tiny community where he was raised, neither one of them can ignore the resurgence of wild attraction they once shared.
Beth swore no man would ever hurt her again – least of all this man. But some love songs can never be forgotten, especially when they were written for you …
AusRom Review of Love Song:
Love Song is a stunningly crafted story of enduring love: love for your land and community, love for home and family, and the love that comes from a person who simply challenges your very understand of what love really means.
But Love Song in its very essence is much much more than this. Wasley has tackled topics of Indigenous affairs and puts forth a very human story to the devastating effects of corporations over communities, the ever widening gap that affects our Indigenous Australians, all whilst broaching the subject of diversity in Australia with astounding clarity and deftness.
Wasley’s characters are competently nuanced bringing with them a strength yet vulnerability and delicateness that only an accomplished author such as Wasley could achieve.
Wasley’s inclusion of an Indigenous character as her leading man is not only refreshing, but offers a diversity that is vitally important inside the romance fiction genre. Love Song will tug at the heartstrings of her many readers.
