On a hot January afternoon, Fairlie Winter receives a phone call. Her best friend has just taken her own life.

Jenna Rudolph, 26 years old, has left behind a devoted husband, an adorable young son and a stunning vineyard. But Fairlie knows she should have seen this coming.

Yet Fairlie doesn't know what Jenna's husband Ark is hiding, nor does she know what Jenna's mother Evelyn did to drive mother and daughter apart all those years ago.

Until Fairlie opens her mail and finds a letter. In Jenna's handwriting. Along with a key.

Driven to search for answers, Fairlie uncovers a horrifying past, a desperate mother, and a devastating secret kept by those she loves the most.

        Comments about Like I Can Love:

        This is a satisfying story of love and friendship, well woven with enough levity and sensitivity to make readable the depth of heartache that is central to the novel. Living overseas, the vivid descriptions and characters evoked the details and culture of Australia that I dearly miss.

            This is one of those books that is perfect for a rainy, winter's day. Snuggle on the lounge with a blanket and a cup of tea, and sink into the story.
            The characters are engaging and realistic. The plot was intriguing and kept me wanting just one more page/chapter...
            I have added this book to my list of books to read again. And again.
