A woman experiences seven pivotal and wrenching relationships throughout the course of her life, from a passionate lover who changes her future and a risk-taking son who resists intervention to an eccentric red-headed mother and a beautiful young co-worker. 20,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
In the eighteenth year of her marriage, May Nilsson falls obsessively in love. It is a chance meeting in a distant city, and though she has a settled existence and two children at home, the moment she sees the grave, smoky-eyed man across the table, May finds her life irrevocably changed.
Who most deeply affects our lives? Sometimes it is those who touch us unexpectedly, even briefly, who leave the most lasting, indelible marks. For May, these include the lover she takes in her forties; the handsome, troubled young rebel she is determined to rescue; the police officer who inadvertently plays a major role in her greatest catastrophe.
Traveling backward and forward in time, Seven Loves weaves together the strands of an ordinary life made extraordinary by the complex passions that drive it. We meet May in childhood and in later life, as adventuring student, as wife and desperate mother. We see her as she defends her ideals and then loses sight of them, and as she finally finds tenderness and redemption in the unlikeliest of places.
