Chronicling five years of a troubled romance, This Is Between Us offers an intimate view of one couple’s struggle - from the illicit beginnings of sexual obsession to the fragile architecture of a pieced-together family. Full of sweet moments, emotional time bombs, unexpected humor, and blunt sexuality, the daily life of this man and woman, both recently divorced, with children and baggage in tow, emerges in all of its complexity. In this utterly engrossing debut novel, Kevin Sampsell delivers a confessional tale of love between two resilient people who have staked their hearts on each other.
Kevin Sampsell's writing is SO intimate. This audiobook gives the impression of overhearing a lover’s whispering, of eavesdropping on a series of reminiscences.
The story of two divorcés in their late thirties, each with a child, and the ups and downs of their relationship, from sexual obsession through a joining of their families, estrangement, and reconciliation.
I can’t think of any book I’ve listened to that so accurately captured the experience of dating and relationships in later life, with all the insecurities and obstacles that were absent in one’s twenties.
James Patrick Cronin reads with powerful intensity. The love and obsession come through in every word.
