Review quote

It's a fantastic historical fiction debut set in the Spanish Civil War, featuring a wonderfully passionate and resourceful heroine. Recommended. The Bookseller This book should certainly appeal to those interested in an anti-fascist struggle whose events and consequences still impact in Spain and beyond to this day. Highly recommended. The Morning Star Carefully-researched and rich with fascinating period detail, A World Between Us is a compelling story of politics and passion, bravery and love. Booktrust An outstanding debut novel for teenagers ... Thoroughly researched and beautifully written ... Syson has written an affecting story that takes its protagonists on a gruelling journey through a war-torn landscape. Picasso's Guernica continues to bear witness to that city's tragic fate; this accomplished wartime romance will enthral while reminding you why he painted it. The Guardian Syson brings history alive through careful detail The Observer This book should certainly appeal to those interested in an anti-fascist struggle whose events and consequences still impact in Spain and beyond to this day. Highly recommended. The Morning Starshow more

About Lydia Syson

Lydia Syson is a fifth-generation North Londoner who now lives south of the river. She is working through her ambitions in a disorderly fashion. The publication of her first novel, A WORLD BETWEEN US, has taken a good few decades. During this time she went from being a BBC World Service radio listener in Botswana to a producer in London, and then became a non-medical doctor and mother of four. She also wrote a biography of Britain's first fertility guru, DOCTOR OF LOVE: JAMES GRAHAM AND HIS CELESTIAL BED, learning a lot about enlightenment sex in the process. Getting to Timbuktu is still on the 'to do' list - it was the subject of her PhD thesis - but bilingualism and Hollywood musical stardom are looking increasingly unlikely.
