Title: The Physics of Love

Published by: PLS Bookworks
September 2016

A woman looking for love, a boy looking for family, and the man who found both.
Set in 1930’s and 1940’s Newfoundland, this story is as rugged as the island setting. Years of struggling to survive in a harsh environment have created a unique group of people, isolated by the miles of ocean surrounding them who long to connect with each other. Laura, motherless since she was 12, has sought her father’s love and attention ever since; however, his heart is buried with his dead wife. He has nothing to give. Richard, the son born of a backseat liaison sure to anger her father, stands between the life Laura thinks she wants and the life she will be relegated to in the small town of Carbonear. So she does the unthinkable—she leaves him. Richard grows up thinking Laura is his sister, only to learn when he is a teenager that she is his mother, that his father is really his grandfather, and that the woman he calls Mom isn’t even related to him by blood. But instead of destroying him, Richard sets out on a journey to prove he is wanted and he is part of a family that would love him if they really knew him. In the process, he finds everything—and more—that he longs for.
