A compelling and secret love story set in the aftermath of World War One by award-winning author Marion Husband.

November 1919

War hero Paul Harris returns from the trenches and finds himself torn between desire and duty. His secret lover Adam awaits him but so too does Margot, the pregnant fiancée of his dead brother.

Set in a time when homosexuality was ‘the love that dare not speak its name’ Paul has to decide where his loyalty and his heart lie.

Praise for The Boy I Love

As with all the best novelists, Husband's talent seems to draw its energy from the experience of writing from perspectives far removed from her own as she inhabits other genders, other sexualities, other eras. Her ventriloquism is compelling.’ Author Patrick Gale

Winner of The Andrea Badenoch Award, Husband’s novels are compelling page turners with hidden secrets and complex love lives that vividly convey the aftermath of dreadful conflicts. Marion Husband never shies away from describing life - and death - or the physical side of her characters' sexual relationships.’ The Northern Echo

‘Husband’s stunning writing and inspired prose lend well to her honest characters. Her writing is incredibly easy to read and sucks you in to the story immediately - read when you’re in the mood for something intense and moving.’ Three Dollar Bill Reviews, USA
