Description : The second novel from the winner of the Costa First Novel Award 2010; a stunning story of the value of life. In Delhi a small baby lies alone and abandoned. The product of IVF and surrogacy, she had been so coveted - until she was born with a fatal illness. No one knows how the infection could have been transferred to the child, but one thing is certain: no one wants her now. Thousands of miles away in London, Kate and Ben are desperate for a baby. But, despite all their efforts, fate seems to be skewed against them. Then, as Kate suffers another miscarriage, she knows something has to change. She has heard of women who are prepared to carry a baby for others, and she knows this might be a way to finally find happiness. But will her desire for a baby stop at nothing…? And between the two, feisty social worker Simran Singh is determined to uncover the truth behind the shadowy façade of the multi-million dollar surrogacy industry. Women and children are being exploited, their lives thrown away like so much dust. Is she is the only person prepared to stand up for what is right...?

Description : The five stories in this collection are taken from Les Crimes de I'Amour, originally published in 1800. Sade is best known for his major sensational books, yet in his lifetime these appeared in anonymous or clandestine editions. It was while he was detained in prison and incarcerated in the asylum at Charenton that he decided to follow his 'philosophical' novel Aline et Valcour with writings more accessible to the general public. He wanted to prove he was not a mere pornographer but a moralist, like Voltaire and other contemporaries. In Crimes of Love Sade contends that love can often lead to crime, and thence to punishment.
