Losing You

Lauren Scott is bright, talented and beautiful. At eighteen, she is the most precious gift in the world to her mother, and has a dazzling career ahead of her.


Oliver Lomax is a young man full of promise, despite the shadow his own, deeply troubled, mother casts over him.


Then one fateful night, Oliver makes a decision that tears their worlds apart.


Until then, Lauren and Oliver had never met, but now they become so closely bound together that their families are forced to confront truths they hoped they’d never have to face, secrets they’d never even imagined…

      Gosh, what a mess! I’m so sorry about this. If you contact me through the Contacts page on this website I’ll make sure someone sends you a copy that is properly put together.

  • Chandre says:

    What I remember about reading this book is crying. I cried so much.
    I couldn’t — and still can’t — understand how anybody can capture a mothers love so perfectly. I loved that Lauren’s mom believed that she could keep her alive by the sheer force of her will. That she believed her love was great enough to bring Lauren back.

    The ending <3

    It's a beautiful book Mrs. Lewis. Definitely a favourite of mine.

  • Kath Edwards says:

    I have read about five of your novels now. Losing You stands out in my mind, the love of a mother for her daughter and what she goes through to keep her safe and happy despite her father. A wonderful story so full of emotion. I have just finished Never Say Goodbye which again made me cry, your knack of understanding human emotions blows me away. One of my favourites is Dont Let Me Go, little Chloe so fragile and damaged will stay with me forever and your descriptions of New Zealand are wonderful. Thank you Susan for your wonderful stories, now Im retired I love to read and your at the top of the list.
    Another one for me was Forgotten, my mother in law had dementia before she passed away and again your understanding knew no bounds.

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Oh Kathy, what a lovely message. Thank you so much for your encouragement and support. I really gives me inspiration to keep going. I wonder if you know that there is a prequel to Don’t Let Me Go titled No Child of Mine. They can be read out of order, in fact they might be easier to read that way!

      • Monique says:

        Firstly I bloody love your books!! I’ve recently just ordered lots off amazon and have just read no child of mine. I know the sequel is called don’t let me go (but I’ve not read it yet) but is there a 3rd? I won’t stop until I have your whole collection they are amazing books and you are truly talented x

        • Susan Lewis says:

          Well, I bloody love your message 🙂 Thank you so much. Yes, there is a third book in the Ottilie/chloe series. I’m afraid it doesn’t have a title yet, but it is due to be published at the beginning of 2017. Happy reading, and thank you so much for your wonderful encouragement and support.

  • Sally Garland says:

    Absolutely loved this story, characters brought to life and once again I felt myself drawn in feeling thier pain. What makes it so real is knowing the places and remembering visits to the hospitals myself. A wonderful way of bring the book to life keep up the great work Susan

  • Annie Barnard says:

    Hello Susan.
    I just wanted to say that I am really enjoying your books, i’ve just started reading Losing You, and it’s really caught my attention, i’ve already become hooked. It’s really hard for me to find books that catch my full attention – I find the way you write them interesting, and your words are catching, unlike some authors. My dream is to finish my novel, although I still have a problem finishing it – but you are my inspiration to follow it through. Please keep writing amazing books, and exciting love/romance story lines, I’ll buy them straight away! Thank you x

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Thank you for these lovely words about Losing You. It’s marvellous to hear that it is inspiring you to keep going with your own novel – I hope that continues and that you do get to the end.
      If you’ve already finished Losing You why don’t you try No Child of Mine and Don’t Let Me Go in that order.. Hopefully they will work for you too.

  • Ian McNamara says:

    Just finished losing you, another gripping and emotional story and different from no child of mine and don’t let me go. I found this book so uplifting and enjoyable. I really fell in love with most of the characters in this book apart from a couple who I found very self-centred. Will have to try and work out witch book I am going to read next. they all sound really good.

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Thank you so much for this Ian. Why don’t you try Stolen, or Never Say Goodbye. Just a thought.

  • William Dean says:

    I only discovered you as an author about three months ago and I have already read five of your novels. I was so impressed with your story lines and your knowledge of human relations; it really is a gift. I am 79 years of age.

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Hi William, I feel very honoured by your kind words. Thank you so much for being so encouraging, it means a great deal coming from someone with your long experience of life. I hope you continue to enjoy my books – and good health!!

  • mandy says:

    I really enjoyed reading this book and found it difficult to put down, I felt as though I really knew the characters in this book and found the story so touching. In fact the first book I read writted by Susan Lewis was Don’t Let Me Go and have been hooked since. II have four books of her books ready for my reading pile. Well done Susan

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Thank you for your lovely message Mandy. I’m very touched to hear that you are enjoying my books, and I really appreciate you taking the time to be in touch to say so.

  • Lynn says:

    I have recently finished Don’t let me go…what a fabulous book, a real heart rending story that will make you cry. Little Chloe will stay with me forever and has made me realise that there are children in similar situations. Unfortunately I didn’t realise that it was paired with No child of mine. Is there any point reading this, I presume don’t let me go is the sequel

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Lynn, I’m so pleased you enjoy Don’t Let Me Go so much. As for whether there’s any point to reading No Child of Mine I would say that this isn’t always an easy read, emotionally, but knowing where it’s going might help.

  • Liz Bussey says:

    Just finished reading this book. My daughter recently had a stoke at age 44 which paralysed her right side and has affected her speech. Therefore I had a lot to relate to in this book. Susan was able to explain all the emotions which affect a family when someone they love deeply has a head injury. We are still in the early stages of recovery I am told so cannot see light at the end of the tunnel just yet. Therefore I can only hope that my daughter will be like Lauren and fight with determination to get better.

    A very moving book and a great insight to the affects this sort of thing has on a family or families.

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Oh Liz, I’m so sorry to hear of what you’re going through. What a terrible thing to happen to your daughter, and she’s so young. I really hope her journey back to you is swift and turns into a full recovery. It must be so difficult right now, but please have faith and believe in her. I’m sure you do, and she’s so lucky to have you to care for her. Please know my thoughts and my love are with you.

  • Sheila says:

    I have just finished reading Losing You and wish there was a sequel.
    What a wonderful book. The characters will stay with me forever.
    This is the first book I have read by Susan Lewis and I’ve already been and bought another one.

    • Susan Lewis says:

      Thank you much for this, Sheila. I’m so touched that you felt the characters so deeply. What more could an author ask for?
      I really hope you enjoy the next one you’ve bought. As you’re new to my books I should probably mention that No Child of Mine and Don’t Let Me Go are a pair, so you might like to read them in that order.
