The Space Between Us

By John MacKenna

The Space Between Us tells the story of an Irish architect who loses his wife, Beth, in a car accident, and is left to bring up his three-year-old daughter alone. In the immediate aftermath of Beth's death, his emotions lurch from relief to guilt: relief because he no longer has to pretend to have any interest in a relationship that has been falling apart for some time, and guilt because he did not have the courage to talk to Beth before her death. As time goes by, and his daughter Jane grows up, father and daughter grow closer. The reader gradually realises that this relationship is not as it should be. A disturbing and shocking story, deftly told.
