Nineteen years ago, a baby’s unexpected arrival ended Catherine Gannon’s relationship with her first love, Richard Finch. Now, years of longing, secrecy and even anger are being transformed into an obsessive desire to seduce Richard’s teenage son. (who the f is Richard?)
Jack -- the baby that once tore them apart -- has become a beautiful teenager and the spitting image of his father. Seducing him begins as memoriam to lost love, and soon mixes with chemical desire, maternal perversion and a need for revenge, as Catherine plans not only to win Jack’s trust and romantic interest, but to document and reveal his family’s ongoing secrets once the erotic betrayal is complete.
NOTES TO MY LOVER'S SON is set against a backdrop of art and photography, in Los Angeles and London, at art schools, galleries and a dead collector’s Belgravia mansion. In the end, Laura must confront questions with no easy answers: Must great love always end catastrophically? Are her own ideals of unconditional love, familial sacrifice and emotional fidelity letting her down? And will reliving the past finally free Laura from it, or lead to something even darker?
Who the f is Laura?
This is a mess.
