Losing Love is a work of fiction in the interpersonal drama and social issues subgenres. It is intended for mature readers and was penned by author B.J. Herron. The book follows Faith Shields as she is forced to return home after 15 years following a family tragedy. Now back in the environment that left a lifetime of scars, Faith must put the ghosts of her past to rest once and for all if she is to have any hope of a happy future. Surrounded by painful memories and the people who caused them, Faith and her husband Nicholi aim to walk away at the end of the visit stronger than ever.
This book is a powerful piece of family drama that casts a long hard look at the damage that poor family relationships can do to a person and the lifelong effects of that damage. Faith is an excellent lead character for such a story, balancing strength and vulnerability as she is forced to step back in time and confront her personal demons. B.J. Herron is a deft storyteller who perfectly captures the feelings of dread that a person can experience in an environment filled with painful memories. Constantly able to make familiar and normal surroundings feel oppressive through association, Herron’s prose is consistently high quality, and the author's understanding of trauma is evident throughout the work. Losing Love is an incredible journey and a very worthwhile character study of a trauma survivor. Overall, I recommend it strongly to fans of deep and meaningful family dramas.
