Somebody to Love by Aurelia Fray is the story of Rachel and Henry. Rachel has a successful career, but an equally unsuccessful love life. She doesn’t have a perfect body, lacks confidence and is surrounded by people who never really appreciate her. Her cousin suggests she visit a psychologist in order to get help with her broken attitude and spoiled relationships. But when Rachel walks into the psychologist’s office, instead of a sixty-year-old bald man, she meets a young, handsome man. Henry had only come to fix the plumbing in the office, but when Rachel mistook him for the psychologist, he played along. They take an interest in each other and try to figure out their feelings for each other. But, things become more complicated as Henry tries to stick to his lies.
In Somebody to Love, Aurelia Fray has spun a tale of a contemporary romance. In the form of Rachel and Henry, we meet complex characters with realistic problems. The initial misunderstanding provides a good scenario for the story to develop. However, the writer is clever not to let that drag on endlessly. The story evolves just as the characters grow and change. The writing style is very good. The writer hasn’t complicated the language for the sake of it. It feels as real as how we would talk to each other. Rachel might have problems, but she is not a damsel in distress. Henry might want to help her, but he doesn’t try to be the knight in shining armor. In Rachel and Henry we find a love story worth swooning over, yet not as impractical as a fairy tale. It is simpler and closer to reality, and that’s what makes it better.
