there’s Alexandra who after writing a note to husband Tom sets off to meet her friend but disappears on route we meet Elle and Jane who are friends of Alexandra and who are sisters Elle likes to write letters to the Universe whereas Jane has found herself pregnant at 17 we then meet Leslie who we learn is cut off from all of her family and friends due to a genetic gene and then finally we meet Tom Alexandra’s husband as he sets about trying to find his wife It’s complete chaos ranging from 1989 to 1996 to the present day of 2007 told in letter forms and flashbacks and I was a bit concerned the book would carry on that way But after setting out the storyline by introducing us to the main characters and their problems we then stay in 2007 and the story progresses from there like a proper story should as they try to find AlexandraThe plot truly is fantastic because although the basis for the entire plot is Alexandra being missing and Tom’s search to find her we also learn about Tom Jane Elle and Leslie After meeting at a Jack Lukeman concert they got stuck in the lift they all band together to search for Alexandra but they also become friends as well Yet they all have their own problems Jane is still in love with her son Kurt’s dad Dominic Elle has deep set issues with the world Leslie lives her life under a cloud constantly being hounded by a gene that has harmed other family members and Tom is just looking for his wife As they all try to come to terms with their problems and learn new secrets and start new relationships you really begin to care about each and every one of them and I was turning the pages avidly desperate to carry on readingThere is no main or lead character in the novel that’s shared by Jane Tom Elle and Leslie and each have their own uirks and foibles that make them their own I liked them all eually and found them all incredibly well rounded But what I liked best was that they were all so human They each made mistakes throughout the novel little ones big ones and for me it just made me like them all the Jane was the most family oriented looking after her son Kurt as well as her aging drunk mother Rose and flighty sister Elle and always put them before herself Elle as I’ve said was flighty and impulsive and a bit of a wild child and she spoke to me the most I think for the record I am nothing like Elle Leslie was shy staying alone and away from the world until her encounter in the lift when she finally decided it was time to stop living like a hermit And Tom Tom was brave when many people would have just left Alexandra for dead Tom carried on looking for her and I totally admired that in him He had heart and spirit In fact they all had heart and spirit There are many other minor characters in the novel Rose Elle and Jane’s spiky mother Kurt Jane’s teenage son Alexandra’s family her parents and siblings Leslie’s sister’s widow Jim they all made their mark and none so than Alexandra herself Alexandra herself is in four pages total but the book is infinitely her From the memories Jane has of her to Tom’s memories her families memories she just shines off the pages and despite not really knowing her we do care for her I’ve no idea how McPartlin pulled that off but she did and for me Alexandra was utterly realThe One I Love is about a lot of things but the main thing that will stay with me is written on the front of the book that no matter what true friends will not give up and that encompasses the book perfectly Not only that but the feeling I got of how each of the characters found themselves it was immense McPartlin has pulled off another stunning novel and for me she ranks up there with Marian Keyes and Melissa Hill in terms of how well she writes and how good she is at crafting a story The book is told in third person moving from Jane to Elle to Leslie to Tom which works fantastically well and I never got lost off despite there being so much going on I adored the book and Anna is two for two with me so far and I look forward to getting stuck into her other two novels I sincerely hope she’s working on another novel – and many other novels in the future – as she’s definitely an author you want to be reading She may not be huge in the UK I can’t really speak for Ireland but she deserves to be I am a huge fan

I enjoyed a number of the characters in this book I found it slow moving however and struggled to get back to it on a couple of occasions I found the writing style clear and consistent and I did like the music references scattered throughoutThe simplicity of both the characters and the plot was nice and there were no dramatic inconsistencies but this also made it feel a bit slow in places as there was a well thats no surprise feeling about some of the revelationsOverall I would recommend this book and I will try by this author in future as I had not read anything from her before
