"This is sumptuous, lavish writing. Get a copy of Loving Soren, grab a cup of tea, sit down by the fire, and prepare to be carried away to the time and place so deftly evoked in this beautiful first novel from Caroline ONeill." - Thom Lemmons, author of Sunday Clothes and co-author of Kings Ransom
Set in Copenhagen and the Danish West Indies in the mid-nineteenth century, LOVING SOREN is the true story of Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, told from the point of view of his fiancee. It is about a woman who tries to save a man from himself, and ends up losing her self in the process. And it raises the issue: can you ever get over your first love? A historical novel of faith, love and identity about one of the most regarded philosophers of the modern era.
