"Perfection Comes at a Price" by Ulla Beattie is published

A story of love & ambition, providence and redemption

About the Book:

Eric has a miserable childhood in a violent, drunken family in a tough London housing estate. He compensates by looking for perfection. For him, this means worldly success in a diplomatic career as far away from his childhood as possible. His single-minded ambition comes at a price. It makes him leave his childhood sweetheart Katie behind, since he knows that she can't keep up with him. Their ways part. Eric marries an upper-class woman and becomes an Ambassador. However, Katie and he never quite lose touch. After his wife's death Eric and Katie come together again.

Excerpt from the book:

"There had to be some hidden reason for him not to want to marry her. She knew and felt that he loved her. Was it perhaps something connected to those deep, dark moods of which she had the odd glimpse on the occasions when he had got drunk in her company? The depth of those dark feelings had frightened her. She realised that she knew only patches of his character and what drove him on.

To the world he was jolly and superficial. What had he wanted? Now that she thought about it, Katie remembered how at the beginning he had tried to interest her in history, art and music, but seeing that she did not have the same enthusiasm, he had given up on that. He had tried to teach her card games, but she had no card sense, and it had had to be given up."
