Athina Paris, Love & Madness, fiction
Athina Paris marks her debut in the world of literature with a stunning novel that explores the essence of family and love in the light of some of life's most intriguing questions. Love and Madness is a story of lives bound and broken by greed and power.
With his power over one of the most successful construction companies, Benjamin Powell believes he is well on his way to building an empire. But when he starts to manipulate his three sons, his carefully planned and constructed fortress of power and prestige begins to crumble.
Twenty-seven years later, the consequences of Benjamin's sins still remain and have left his family in a convoluted mess. But the worst is yet to come. The already volatile situation becomes even more complex when three women enter their lives. Sofia, Christie and Gloria become inextricably drawn to the Powell men but love is never simple, especially in the world of the Powells. In their quest for happiness, these people will find themselves enmeshed in a game that will test them at every turn.
Deeply layered and emotionally complex, Love and Madness is at once a gripping story of a family tested by the vicissitudes of selfish ambition and an exploration of the deepest recesses of the human psyche.
