You Are the Love of My Life
By: Susan Richards Shreve
Publication Date: August 20, 2012

From Amazon:
It is 1973 and Watergate is on everyone's lips. Lucy Painter is a children's book illustrator and a single mother of two. She leaves New York and the married father of her children to live in a tightly knit Washington neighborhood in the house where she grew up and where she discovered her father's suicide. Lucy hopes for a fresh start, but her life is full of secrets: her children know nothing of her father's death or the identity of their own father. As the new neighbors enter their insular lives, her family's safety and stability become threatened.

This book sounds so intriguing as I enjoy books about the 60s and 70s and that take place in Washington D.C. (Something Red one of my favorites falls into both of those categories as well).  I also can't wait until August because then I can resume my normal compulsive reading ways.


  1. This one sounds great! I love the 70s setting.

  2. This sounds really good. I love that it is set in a time that is not used in fiction often. Thank you for the introduction. My WOW...

  3. this does sound intriguing..thanks for sharing it. My WoW
