Synopsis

"Trasandes eloquently renders the passionate and heartrending love story...it's rare to root for all sides of a love triangle, but the author's depth of insight into her characters makes this a wonderfully accomplished first novel."--Publisher's Weekly



An unforgettably haunting novel--intertwining stories reveal how a man and a woman fall in love with the same extraordinary person



Broken Like This by Monica Trasandes is the saga of Kate Harrington--who for the past fifteen years has been the muse, provocateur and lodestone in the lives of Louis Ross and Angela Agnelli. After a car accident in Ibiza, Kate lies comatose and is, unbeknownst to anyone, two months pregnant. Angela and Louis both fly to her side, as does Kate's step-father, who's been a dark presence in all of their lives for many years. Told in present day and breathtaking flashbacks, by turns bittersweet and brutally honest--this is a remarkable debut.


What begins as an evocative story of love and identity evolves, faster and faster, into a high-scale drama--with a conclusion that is truly heartrending. From sunny, Southern California to the sweaty, musical streets of Brazil; from a garden in Boston to a rooftop in Brooklyn--Broken Like This is a rare novel that captures the utter joy felt when meeting that person whose energy and passion will shape your life forever.
