Back cover copy

Any idiot can fall in love. No special talent required for that. The trick is to love somebody who might actually do you some good. That’s the part hardly anybody gets right. Hayden briefly has it all: a wife and daughter he adores and a baby on the way. But when his son dies at birth, a deep anger emerges, robbing Hayden of everything. Years on, Hayden is living in self-imposed exile. He’s just lost his beloved dog and is now losing Laurel, the only woman he's loved since... But just as Hayden’s rage rises again, a young figure from the past emerges, forcing him to re-visit his long-buried childhood… The Hardest Part of Love was originally published as Electric God
