Piece of My Heart

By Nicole Jacquelyn

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Nicole Jacquelyn explores love, loss, and forgiveness in her latest novel. A perfect read for fans of Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, and Mia Sheridan.

When easygoing Alex Evans meets Sarai Levy he's immediately intrigued. She's quiet. Sweet. Introverted. She's an immigrant from Israel, working on her graduate degree at a local college and so gorgeous he has a hard time keeping his eyes off her.

When they're married after two months of dating, Alex is sure it's the right move, even though they barely know anything about each other. They're in love and determined to make their life together work. But when Sarai discovers she's pregnant--and then miscarries--Alex's perfect life comes crashing down around him.

Devastated, Alex learns that he can't always be the charismatic, carefree guy of his past. Now he has to be the man his wife needs. But with so many unknowns, can these two learn to trust each other with painful truths, or will their past secrets ruin their marriage for good?

Biographical Notes

Nicole Jacquelyn is the author of the popular Aces series as well as the Fostering Love novels. She is also the mom of two little girls and one lazy Boxer pup. She hasn't watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. Since the age of twelve she knew she wanted to be a writer. But first she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year--with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool--she sat down and wrote a story.

'Terribly moving. A clear-sighted, poignant rumination on loneliness, love, the melancholy of age and of youth - and, in its quiet way, the end of the world' China Mieville 'A sad, funny, highly original novel. Not since Holden Caulfield have I been so captivated by a first-person voice as the one Season Butler creates in Cygnet' Blake Morrison, author of Things My Mother Never Told Me'Wholeheartedly enjoy(able)' Lauren Wilkinson on her Year in Reading for Millions'Season Butler is an extraordinary writer. In this wonderful novel the narrative voice is rhythmic and compelling, telling a coming of age story which resonates with our times. Like Colson Whitehead, her work is fearless in its inventiveness' Julia Bell, author of Massive***The Kid doesn't know where her parents are. They left with a promise to come back months ago, and now their seventeen-year-old daughter is stranded on Swan Island. Swan isn't just any island; it is home to an eccentric old age separatist community who have shunned life on the mainland for a haven which is rapidly sinking into the ocean. The Kid's arrival threatens to burst the idyllic bubble that the elderly residents have so carefully constructed - an unwelcome reminder of the life they left behind, and one they want rid of.Cygnet is the story of a young woman battling against the thrashing waves of loneliness and depression, and how she learns to find hope, laughter and her own voice in a world that's crumbling around her.

'One of the feminist novels of 2018' Stylist'A pacy dystopian thriller' Red Magazine'Topical, probing and quietly intense - XX is a phenomenal debut' Skinny'Fantastic - completely topical, utterly believable, and that rare thing: an issue-driven book that feels like a story, not an issue' Julie CohenWhen Rosie and Jules discover a ground-breaking clinical trial that enables two women to have a female baby, they jump at the chance to make history.Fear-mongering politicians and right-wing movements are quick to latch on to the controversies surrounding Ovum-to-Ovum (o-o) technology and stoke the fears of the public. What will happen to the numbers of little boys born? Is there a sinister conspiracy to eradicate men at play?In this toxic political climate, Jules and Rosie try to hide their baby from scrutiny. But when the news of Rosie's pregnancy is leaked to the media, their relationship is put under a microscope and they're forced to question the loyalty of those closest to them, and battle against a tirade of hate that threatens to split them apart...What readers are saying: 'Well written, perfectly paced and so timely,. Through excellent character development, Chadwick manages to explore the social, ethical and political questions raised, while still telling what is at its core a beautifully human story.''I could not put this down, even when my heart was aching and my pulse was raging.''This is politically and ethically engaging, as well as a very personal read. It shows a world that is only a few years away, and it left me with a lot of thoughts about gender and science. Excellent.'"The whole plot was set out so effectively that it made me feel like this was something that could be being developed somewhere in the world right now or it's in the near distant future!
