Lottie is living in her mother's house for the summer, refurbishing it so that it can be sold. The summer is in many ways a relief as her second marriage, barely begun, is in trouble. Afraid that she doesn't love her husband Jack in the way she would wish to, the space around her is filled with memories of her love as a daughter, as a sister and as a friend. Cameron, Lottie's brother, has been in love with their neighbour Elizabeth since high school days, but in the intervening years Elizabeth married and had three children. Now finally, they embark on a passionate affair. It is this kind of love, wild and romantic, that Lottie yearns for. As Lottie, Cameron and Elizabeth are reunited they learn that complicated adult lives can offer opportunities to find not only great love, but also suffer great loss. And when a senseless tragedy intrudes upon them, Lottie is forced to examine the consequences of what she has done for love.

Review quote

'A tour de force by any standards One reason for Miller's popularity is that she earns her fans in a time-honoured way: she writes for readers' Newsweek 'Each of her characters is complete and distinctive, a compendium of lovable and exasperating traits Each character has a turn at capturing our full attention' Los Angeles Times 'Miller's special brand of intelligent emotionalism reaches its zenith here: it's deep, resonant, splendid' Kirkus Review 'For Love may be the most honest twentieth century love story we've had in a while' New York Times Book Review
