What happens when people find it impossible to say the words ‘I love you’?
Parents fail their children and those same children abandon their parents; lovers grow apart and, occasionally, mental disintegration prohibits communication altogether. Iris experiences pain, loneliness and fear. Her daughter, Vivie, longs for love but thinks herself unlovable. And Matthew, Vivie’s would-be lover, fails to say how he feels.
Speaking of Love is nonetheless a novel about hope and the restoration of trust, a novel that shows how stories can help make sense of our complicated internal worlds.
When a single moment brings all the characters together there is an opportunity for years of mistrust, hopelessness and loneliness to give way to reconciliation and, most of all, the opportunity for each person to find the courage to say what is in their hearts.
‘The real risk, it seems to me, lies in not talking about the things that matter the most. That’s what made Iris ill. What we don’t say doesn’t go away.’

Read information about the authorAngela Young is a graduate of Middlesex University’s MA in Creative Writing and is the author of two novels. In 1995, BBC Books published Angela’s 30,000-word ending to Edith Wharton’s last, unfinished novel, The Buccaneers, a story of love and marriage set among the British aristocracy and the American moneyed classes in late nineteenth-century England.
Speaking of Love is Angela’s first novel. It explores the relationship of a mother and daughter and what happens when they don't talk about the things that matter the most. It's about how parents fail their children and those same children abandon their parents because what matters most hasn’t been said; about how lovers grow apart and how the mental disintegration that can follow a failure to communicate can prohibit communication altogether. But just before you decide it’s too gloomy for words … it’s also a novel about hope and the restoration of trust, a novel that shows how stories can help make sense of our complicated internal worlds, a novel about the healing power of stories and, most of all, about the healing power of speaking of love.
It's been described as ‘beautifully written’ by Joanna Lumley, and ‘suffused with a love of storytelling and a warmth that makes it a pleasure to read’ by the Daily Mail. It's available in a Kindle edition, see here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00G4401G4 for the uk or here, for the usa : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G4401G4. In print it's available second-hand (Beautful Books, its publisher, went out of business in 2011).
Young's second novel, The Dance of Love, is historical fiction: a coming-of-age tale set in the same era as Downton Abbey. It spans two decades (1899-1919) of vast historical change and, through the joys and disappointments of its heroine, the beautiful, wealthy but independently-minded Natalie Edwardes, it reveals the many faces of love. It was published in 2014 by Buried River Press, a press that's now owned by Crowood Press.
Young lives and writes in south-west London. Her website address is: www.angela-young.co.uk if you'd like to find out more.
