When a terrible accident threatens to end their relationship, a husband and wife ultimately discover the true nature of love in this beautiful, poignant, debut novel. Kit and Alice are enjoying a luxurious weekend break abroad when the unthinkable happens. Their car spins off a mountain road and into an empty desert valley. Their lives are changed in an instant. The accident and its aftermath shatter their faith in their relationship and in each other. Alice's natural optimism deserts her; she stops eating and separates herself from other people. Even her loving sister, Emmy, is kept at a distance. Kit's dog Bones becomes her constant companion. For his part, Kit resents this new brittle Alice; even as he bitterly reproaches himself for his lack of sympathy, he cannot seem to reconnect. Will Kit and Alice be able to move through this crisis and mend their broken relationship? The Trouble With Aliceis a beautifully written tale of two people thrown into the emotional deep end, struggling to find a way back in the aftermath of tragedy. With fresh insight and gentle humor, Olivia Glazebrook unwinds the conventions of a love story to create a "wise, humorous, and humane novel about the nature of real love" ( The Timesof London). This story of the ebb and flow of love is a heartfelt commentary on the power of compassion, of renewal, and the possibility of reconciliation.
