The Distance Between Us by Maggie O'Farrell
The Distance Between Us is the love story between Stella and Jake, and the paths their lives took that led them to the same place in the Scottish Highlands. Jake, raised in Hong Kong, is the son of a Welsh woman and an unknown father. Fleeing a loveless marriage, he comes to Scotland in search of his father. Stella is an Italian-Scottish woman, who shares a dark secret with her sister, Nina. The exposure of this secret threatens her world, as well as her burgeoning relationship with Jake. Maggie O'Farrell moves the story between the present and past, examining the forces of family and love on their lives. The Distance Between Us has received mostly high praise with The Telegraph saying, "To say this is O'Farrell's best book yet is saying a lot. It's beautifully done: the writing is spare and elegant, the characters are supremely well-realised, the story is terrific."
