An epic romance set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War

About the Author

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. You can follow Lydia on www.lydiasyson.com or on Twitter: @lydiasyson

Reviews

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 Star *
