The Thing Between Us by Alison Lawrence
The Thing Between Us is a brutal, funny, engaging and ultimately moving psychological drama that explores love, loss, memory and the ties that bind. Young Linda Small's life is thrown into chaos by the arrival of her parents' goddaughter Shannon in the family home.
Shannon is a fascinator, a liar, a manipulator. Linda is enthralled and life will never be the same. How do we become so entwined with the people we love - or hate? What is The Thing Between Us?
