The Middle Between Us: A Novel
Four tormented souls. Two impossible love stories. One inescapable fate.
The Middle Between Us delicately unfurls the love stories of two sets of couples, detached by time but brought together by fate. Where one is set in the artisanal streets of a 21st-century city life, the other depicts the breathtaking wild mountains of eastern Europe as it’s set ablaze by the religious zealotry of World War I. Where one revolves around two men coming to term with their own sexual identities, the other forces its two young lovers apart in the face of insurmountable odds. Seemingly unrelated at first, the two star-crossed couples find out they are not only parallel – but deeply intertwined.
Itamar S.N. delicately but unapologetically weaves the complexities of modern-day romance with conflicts as old as time, finding the middle between love and acceptance, intimacy and desire, obsession and art.
