A deeply moving tale of love, sex, motherhood, separation, ghosts of the past, and friendship. Spanning fifty years from the 1960s to modern times, the narrative records the development of a relationship between two young people who are neighbors on the back streets of Harehills in Leeds. Their love blossoms in passionate scenes of teenage lust and develops during marriage and parenthood before a hapless decision leads to their separation. Ultimately the relationship becomes an unbreakable friendship that the couple’s children find difficult to understand. Perhaps it is only with the story’s conclusion that the family comprehends what a truly unique bond survives through so many troubling circumstances. The story is loosely based on real-life events and is another gripping read from the author of A Cross Of Crocuses.
