The Distance Between Us   by Maggie O’Farrell

From childhood, Stella harbours a dark secret which profoundly affects her adult life.  Jake’s life is turned around after a tragic event that happened in Hong Kong during the Chinese New Year celebrations. Neither is aware of each other’s existence, but circumstances eventually bring them together. Except for one member, most of us found this novel disappointing and not one of O’Farrell’s best.
