The Distance Between UsBook - 2008
At 71, Hester Parker lives alone in an elegant Victorian house. Her biting wit can't hide the bitterness that comes with loss - the loss of her career as a concert pianist, and of her renowned violinist husband, Arthur, who left her for another woman. The arrival of a lodger, Alex, helps her reconnect with the world outside - as well as exposing old memories and grief that she's long tried to bury. His presence, for one short month, leaves a surprising legacy of acceptance, comfort and hope for the future.
