Customer Review

on 22 September 2005
The Boy I Love is set in Engalnd just after the First World War, and though love and battle may be popular subjects, this writer seeks to probe beyond the 'normal' and the 'ordinary' - as do her characters.
This is the kind of novel that books clubs, and anyone who likes a good story, will love. It is accessible, easy to read and a page turner, but as well as that it raises questions. This is a book about complex desires and needs, set in a time that does not accept relationships that are anything other than the norm. Complicated issues are tackled with great sensitivity and insight in what turns out to be a romance with a difference.
Winner of the Andrea Badenoch Award for Fiction and the Blackwell Prize, Marion Husband has written a thought-provoking story full of memorable images and descriptions that explore the ever-current difficulties of unaccepted love. Thoroughly recommended!
