Broken Like This: A Novel
"Trasandes eloquently renders the passionate and heartrending love story...it's rare to root for all sides of a love triangle, but the author's depth of insight into her characters makes this a wonderfully accomplished first novel."—Publisher's Weekly
An unforgettably haunting novel—intertwining stories reveal how a man and a woman fall in love with the same extraordinary person
Broken Like This by Monica Trasandes is the saga of Kate Harrington—who for the past fifteen years has been the muse, provocateur and lodestone in the lives of Louis Ross and Angela Agnelli. After a car accident in Ibiza, Kate lies comatose and is, unbeknownst to anyone, two months pregnant. Angela and Louis both fly to her side, as does Kate's step-father, who's been a dark presence in all of their lives for many years. Told in present day and breathtaking flashbacks, by turns bittersweet and brutally honest—this is a remarkable debut.
