Synopsis: Bron is a thirty-year-old writer living in London, a seemingly incurable heartbreaker and dodger of commitment. He is fascinated by the symbolist artist Paul Marotte and has made the artist the center of a book he is writing about love at first sight. Bron goes to his friend’s country house to work in solitude but encounters the beautiful, enigmatic Flora. Suddenly the theme of his book takes on a completely new, intensely personal dimension as Bron becomes dangerously smitten by the aloof beauty. Fast-paced, brilliantly crafted, and intellectually stimulating, The Trial of True Love is a captivating exploration of the nature of love, its elusiveness, and most of all, the universal human need to find it.
