The Road Between Us, Paperback Book

The Road Between Us Paperback



1939: In a hotel room overlooking Piccadilly Circus, two young men are arrested.

Charles is court-martialled for `conduct unbecoming'; Anselm is deported home to Germany for `re-education' in a brutal labour camp.

Separated by the outbreak of war, and a social order that rejects their love, they must each make a difficult choice, and then live with the consequences. 2012: Edward, a diplomat held hostage for eleven years in an Afghan cave, returns to London to find his wife is dead, and in her place is an unnerving double - his daughter, now grown up.

Numb with grief, he attempts to re-build his life and answer the questions that are troubling him.

Was his wife's death an accident? Who paid his ransom? And how was his release linked to Charles, his father? As dark and nuanced as it is powerful and moving, The Road Between Us is a novel about survival, redemption and forbidden love.

Its moral complexities will haunt the reader for days after the final page has been turned.
