Book Review – Love’s Long Road by G.D Harper…

Glasgow, 1975. How do you cope when your boyfriend kills himself because of you? 
When Bobbie Sinclair’s boyfriend commits suicide and blames her, she vows never to love again. Instead she chooses to lead a double existence, kind-hearted by day and promiscuous by night. She increasingly struggles to maintain the balance between light and dark and soon finds herself sucked into the world of a controlling and ruthless crime lord from which she must escape. 
Set against a vibrant but seedy 1970s Glasgow backdrop, “Love’s Long Road” plots Bobbie’s desperate plight. Starting a new life but constantly afraid of her past catching up with her, she battles danger, adversity and drug addiction on the long and perilous road back to love. 
“Love’s Long Road” is about dealing with the guilt of terrible events in your past and the risk of being corrupted by the world around you; it is a story that captures to perfection what it was like to be young and single in the 1970s.
I was given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s an extremely accurate depiction of 1970s Glasgow. It’s also well worth a read. Bobbie is a fabulous protagonist and her battles becomes yours as each page turns.
A five out of five star read.
I am profoundly grateful to Netgalley and Cameron Publicity for my copy.
