Return to the northern town of Thorp in this moving new addition to Marion Husband’s bestselling The Boy I Love series.
‘You, me, Eric, Paul Harris – even Margot – even Adele. All of us so messed up by the war we couldn’t tell right from wrong.’
The town of Thorp in the North of England has always held its secrets – with so many husbands having come back from the war different men there are lots of things that can never be said.
And yet, Bobby Harris is determined to find out the truth about his father, Paul. Still haunted by what has been laid bare in a scandalous posthumous biography, he is determined to prove that the book surely contains only lies.
But in a town taut with tragedy more than one secret is bound to come out.
Praise for Marion Husband:
‘As with all the best novelists, Husband’s talent seems to draw its energy from the experience of writing from perspectives far removed from her own as she inhabits other genders, other sexualities, other eras’ Patrick Gale
‘Don’t miss this series – if you love the power of words, words rich in layer and tone . . . you will love them. Can’t recommend them enough.‘ Goodreads Reviewer
