AnnaFor-The-Love-of-Anna-199x300For Love of Anna

For Love of Anna is a glowingly reviewed and brilliantly written thumping good read of love, tragedy and corruption in high places, ideal for snowy nights by a log fire. When university student Guido van Thool accidentally bumps into the beautiful ballerina Anna Zweig in Loti’s café, it sets them off on a whirlwind romance of ballet concerts, anti-globalisation marches and love trysts in bluebell woods. Even when Guido is called away for military service, time can’t test their faithfulness, as they keep their passion warm with love letters. Paralleling their lives, however, is that of Judge Jeremiah Delahyde, a profligate positioned in power by his crony, the government minister Bartholomew Smythe. These parallel lives collide on New Year’s Eve when the drunken judge knocks Anna down in his car with fatal consequences. Guido swears revenge. But how does one retaliate against a corrupt and powerful, politically-appointed high court judge?

‘For Love of Anna by James Lawless is a heartbreaking love story that revolves around the main protagonist Guido van Thool, who is a university student, and the beautiful ballerina Anna Zweig. It is a passionate and moving story, too good to last. The love story is just one thread of the story. What is truly striking about the novel is the author’s use of Anna as an acronym for Anarchists of the New Age. Add the corrupt judge, Jeremiah Delahyde, to the eclectic mix of characters and you have a story that explores not only the love story between Guido and Anna, but it is also a hard-hitting story of ideology and political corruption and anarchism.’ Riverview Notes

‘5.0 out of 5 stars For Love of Anna BY James Lawless is one of the finest 5 STAR pieces of writing I have read in recent years.’
