When Orla, a young barrister working in Dublin, discovers an old family photo taken in 1983, she is intrigued to find out the identity of the teenage boy in it. He stands in between her parents, her beaming mother's arm tightly around him. Yet when she brings it up with her father, he won't be drawn, and pleads with her not to mention it to her mother.

And so begins a journey into the past, to the summer before she was born. But why is it proving so difficult to discover his identity? And why, given her mother's troubled history, is this the last photograph Orla knows of in which she looks truly happy?

Told in the alternating perspectives of Orla and Tim - the boy between - as the circle starts to close on a web of tragedy and deceit, lives all round will be changed in ways that could never have been guessed at.

Tenderly told, The Boy Between is a compelling story of family secrets, focussed on the dark happenings of a fateful summer, and the long buried-events of an even more distant past.
