All I Stole from You
For fans of Lily King's Writers & Lovers comes a captivating debut novel about the complexities of love and the unpredictable bonds that change our lives
Maggie Hoyt is a quick-witted, house-sitting LA actress who's dated one too many DJs for her liking. An incorrigible insomniac, she desperately needs more than four hours of sleep, according to her therapist.
One night, while still grieving the death of her ex-boyfriend, Maggie reluctantly attends her friend's boat party. There she meets Rob, a charming British tattoo artist who makes her feel like her best self for the first time in a while. Their attraction to each other is instantaneous and electrifying. There's just one glaring problem: he's wearing a wedding ring.
Despite their best efforts, Maggie and Rob can't seem to shake their unwavering feelings for each other. When Maggie unexpectedly receives a letter from Rob's estranged wife, she is forced to confront the love she's been looking for, the guilt she's been harbouring, the grief she's been hiding--and the woman she wants to be.
With humour and heart, All I Stole from You is a fresh portrait of the pivotal relationships in our lives: with our romantic partners, our friends, our family and most importantly, ourselves.

About the Author
AVA BELLOWS has been in her sixties for roughly her entire life. She's written hundreds of books in her head before going to sleep at night; this is just the first one she remembered well enough to write down. Bellows was raised between Los Angeles and Denman Island, BC, where she started writing because she had no friends her age to spend time with, other than a few fairies who lived in the trees, and an otter that she tried to convince her parents to let her keep in the bathtub. Ava Bellows lives in Los Angeles with her dog, Sally, but sometimes she pretends she lives with Lorde, Florence Pugh, Molly Baz, Stevie Nicks and Zoe Kravitz, just because it's fun to imagine what that life would look like.
