To say there’s buzz around James Moloney’s newest release, The Love that I Have, would be an understatement: it’s already been hailed as a rival to Markus Zuzak’s beloved novel The Book Thief and The Boy in Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.
The Love That I Have tells the story of Margot Baumann, a naive German girl who leaves school to take up her sister’s job in the mail room of a prison. But this is Germany in 1944, and the prison is Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin.
Margot is at first shielded from the camp’s brutality, but she comes to know the lives of the prisoners through their letters – letters of love, hope and despair.
The Love that I Have is currently sitting at no. 3 on the national bestseller list – so it’s clearly the book to pick up this winter.
Congratulations, James, on the exciting new release!
Perfect for book groups, libraries and senior secondary, James is available to speak on his new book in Brisbane now. James is also touring Melbourne from 20-24th August 2018.
