Stray Love

Not yet rated | write a review

A boy born of an adulterous affair, whose race and parentage are unclear . . . an obsessive journalist who feels alive only on the edge of danger . . . a beautiful but distracted young woman who seems ill-equipped for life-when these three mismatched people come together in London during the 1960s, their lives are changed forever.

Stray Love is the unforgettable story of Marcel, an orphan growing up in postwar England. When his guardian, Oliver, is promoted to foreign correspondent and posted to Vietnam, Marcel is left in the care of the free-spirited Pippa. But just when it seems they will never be reunited, Marcel is sent to join Oliver in Vietnam. As the war escalates, Oliver is finally overwhelmed by emotions he can''t outrun-including his doomed love for Pippa. But Marcel, running through the streets of Saigon, or bonding with his Vietnamese nanny, Anh, is finally starting to feel at home in the world. Is this why Oliver suddenly decides to tell Marcel the truth about his life? And is it the "real" truth or simply Oliver''s version of it?

Editorial Reviews

?Maclear has created an emotionally challenging examination of family, race and, above all, love. I was so moved while reading Stray Love that I went right back and read it again.? ?QUILL & QUIRE (Starred review)
