'One of the best books I've read about grief. Exquisitely written. Profoundly moving' Robert Peston

When Gavanndra Hodge was seven years old her world was a precarious place. Her father was a hairdresser and drug dealer to Chelsea's most decadent inhabitants; her mother an alcoholic ex-model. So, it was up to Gavanndra to keep her sister safe.


But when Candy dies suddenly on holiday aged nine, Gavanndra's family, already so fragile and damaged, implodes.


Now, a mother herself and having only memories of Candy's awful final moments, Gavanndra embarks on a journey to write her way back to the little girl whose death tore her family apart, and rediscover the love she lost.


The Consequences of Love is a story of loss and recovery, trauma and memory. It is a joyous and compelling account of the strength of the love between sisters and how nothing is ever truly lost if we are brave enough to return to where we began. Above all, it testifies the power we have in deciding where we go, regardless of where we begin.
