Love

 

All my novels have the development of relationships in them and it is pretty obvious from the title what ‘Loving Judah’ is about… and yet Judah is Aislin’s step-son so it is not romantic love but maternal love that is the theme.

However, there are other sorts of love in this novel; when Aislin, the main character,  is most desperate, her best friend Sandi flies from Australia to be with her. Aislin’s love for her husband is sorely tried by his reaction to his terrible bereavement, and his love for her is thrown into a different perspective as he tries to make sense of his loss. The different loving relationships between family members, brothers, grandparents and grandchildren, uncles and their nephews, husbands and wives… these are all played out and affect the plot, just as our affections affect what happens to us in real life.
