Review: ‘Whatever You Love’ by Louise Doughty


Laura’s nine-year old daughter Betty has been killed by a dangerous driver, her world is falling apart. Still reeling from her divorce, and her husband’s new life, Laura sinks further and further into darkness. As Laura considers how her life has come to this point, she recounts how she met and fell in love with David, her husband. She realises she needs to do something to avenge her daughter’s death.

This is a complex tale of love, grief, redemption and desire. It is often an uncomfortable read, with detailed accounts of Laura and David’s torrid affair. Doughty creates a story full of suspense and makes the reader wonder how far they would go for the people they love.
