Book Club: If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin

If I Can't Have You

Henpicked’s book of the month for May 2021…

If I Can't Have YouThank you so much to everyone who has joined in the discussion about The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.

If you haven’t shared your thoughts yet, please do join in the conversation at the bottom of the article on Disqus. What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to a friend? We know some of us haven’t finished yet but we’d still like to hear from you.

For this month we’ve chosen If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin.

After fleeing Manchester for London, Constance attempts to put past tragedies behind her and make a fresh start.

When she embarks on a relationship with the new doctor at the medical practice where she works, she’s convinced she’s finally found the love and security she craves.

Then he ends it.

But if life has taught her anything, it’s that if you love someone, you should never let them go.

That’s why for Constance Little, her obsession is only just beginning . . .

Here are the reviews:

‘A blackly comic but heartfelt story of love and loneliness, with an endearing and damaged heroine.’ Sunday Mirror

‘A darkly comic and beautifully written debut novel.’ Woman

‘Blackly comic, heartrendingly sad.’ Best
