Fionnuala Kearney’s The Book of Love is getting some rave reviews and I was delighted to come across this online quiz to tie-in with the release of the  book. It’s just a bit of fun but anything that attracts more readers to this outstanding novel is okay in my book – or my Book of Love!

Here’s just a selection of quotes recommending The Book of Love:

‘A beautiful, heart wrenching love story’ Sinead Moriarty

‘Tender and wise’ Liz Nugent

‘Utterly beautiful’ Claudia Carroll

‘My book of the year’ Claire Allan

‘You’ll cry. You’ll wonder. I loved it mightily’ Anna McPartlin

‘Beautifully written, Kearney skillfully unravels the complexities of an epic love story, with drama and emotion packed into every page’ Carmel Harrington

‘Life, loss, love and hope – a story to steal your heart and stir your soul. Gorgeous!’ Miranda Dickinson

‘Open this book only if you are prepared to forever leave a piece of your heart between its pages’ Anstey Harris, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton
