   schema:reviewBody ""It is July, three months after Lara's seventeenth birthday and a week before Charles and Diana's Royal Wedding, when Lara's father, a man she barely knows, invites her to accompany him on a holiday to Italy. Soon Lara has exchanged the exhaust fumes of London's Holloway Road for the sun-scorched hillsides of Tuscany, and evenings spent listening to her father and his old friend Caroline exchanging cool, sardonic banter about a past Lara knows nothing about. As Lara's skin turns golden, she begins to relax, seduced by the limpid beauty of the landscape, the rustle of the crickets and the lure of the pool." "One night Lara is taken for dinner at the Willoughbys', their nearest neighbours, and finds herself irresistibly drawn to the carelessly beautiful only son of the family - a boy with five older sisters, who seems, fleetingly, unbelievably, to be interested in her too. But the Willoughbys are a family life with illicit alliances and vendettas, and the more embroiled Lara becomes with them the more consumed she is with doubt, curiosity and dread." "Love Falls is an unforgettable story about families, secrets, new love - and about adolescence in all its awkwardness and excitement."--BOOK JACKET." ;
