Set in the UK, Love’s Register tells the story of romantic love and climate change over four generations. Told by five members of the Lavender family, it begins in York, UK, in the middle of the free-love 60s, and ends with the night sea journey across the vastness of Oceania. The family voices, plus others, take us through generational conflicts in the 1920s, open relationships in the feminist 80s/90s and a contemporary late-life love affair. Led by a cast of varied, in-depth characters whose stories intersect surprisingly, with plenty of passion and humour, Love’s Register is a coming-of-age family saga and modern psychological novel that explores the way we live now.
Love’s Register is an edit of three previously published books – Purple, Blue, Violet – combined with the voices of a new generation of characters and an indigenous climate activist.
What people say about Love’s Register
“How are we to make sense of these times, to process where we are and what we are facing? In these times we most need our artists. To help us to feel, to help us to imagine. Giving thanks to Leslie Tate, writer and rebel, for their novel Love’s Register; to move us, lift us up, make sense and dream that another world is possible…” Dr. Gail Bradbrook, co-Founder Extinction Rebellion
