Returning to the home where he was traumatically taken into foster care as a young child, Gavigan is on a journey about his late mother and indeed, about himself.
Natasha, although from a different rung on the social ladder, also had a challenging upbringing in a family comprising a loving, but absent, father and a mother who is emotionally remote.
Set during the period of the Celtic Tiger crash, 'Two Lives' is a story of two people's efforts to overcome adversity. Can they succeed? As with his previous novel, 'The Boy in the Gap', Paul Soye explores these issues with sensitivity, assuredness and skill.
Praise for Paul Soye’s The Boy In The Gap
‘A beautifully written book, clear and unadorned; the story of a hidden Ireland’
‘Soye has his own independent style that is as enthralling as it is absorbing ... Let’s hope that this writer’s ink never stops flowing’
‘A beautifully written, heartfelt account of a family torn apart. There are echoes of John McGahern in the elegiac evocation of a rural community in the west of Ireland’
Shirley Kelly, Books Ireland.
