Only Love Can Hurt Like This

Only Love Can Hurt Like This

an unforgettable love story from the Sunday Times bestselling author


Brought to you by Penguin.

Some love stories are worth risking everything for.

Wren leaves home and heartbreak to spend the summer with her father and step-family on their farm in Indiana, Midwestern USA. More than anything she hopes this trip will provide a chance to heal and build bridges.

There Wren meets two brothers. Jonas is a notorious heartbreaker and Anders is still grieving the wife he lost in a tragic accident three years ago. In spite of being warned off falling for either of them, Wren is inextricably drawn to Anders.

As the harvest approaches, Wren knows her feelings are growing stronger. What Wren doesn't know is that Anders has been harbouring an earth-shattering secret, and if he acts on any feelings he has for Wren it will have serious fall-out for everyone.

Walking away from Anders will hurt Wren more than she can imagine. But how can she possibly stay once she's discovered the obstacles that lie between them?

'Deep, emotional, powerful, beautifully written with a masterful tender touch - this book is a must-read.' Milly Johnson

'Oh my GOD. This book! Only Paige Toon can make me believe in the power of love this way. Wren and Anders took me on a sweeping journey through America's Midwest that left me giddy, and breathless. This is going to be totally massive, because it has everything: family, love, secrets, sexy descriptions of brooding, hot men... just sublime' Laura Jane Williams
