WHEN SORROWS COME by Katie M John
A Contemporary Upper YA Romance
OUT JANUARY 14th 2016
“When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions!”
Seventeen year old, Ophelia is in love with the tall, dark and handsome Malachi: Mathematical Genius, Poet, Swimmer, and Narcissist.
Drawn together by their own self-destructive impulses, they begin a consuming and twisted tango of desire and rejection.
As Ophelia learns to cope with her mother’s bi-polar episodes, she discovers the world can soon become a dark and lonely place when left to face it on your own.
When Malachi’s mother marries his uncle, Malachi’s word turns on a spindle, his previously charmed life invaded by a monster.
With Malachi’s increasing paranoia and anger starting to take over his life, it is only Ophelia who can offer any kind of salvation; only Malachi doesn’t know how to love anything other than his future dream of greatness.
Finding herself caught in an exquisitely bitter-sweet relationship, Ophelia falls in love with a boy who will only realise his love for her when it is too late.
UPPER YA. 15+ Contains more adult themes of sexual relationships, self-harm, drinking, drugs and more adult language.
Available on pre-order from all Amazon worldwide platforms.
