Description - Between Mountains by Maggie Helwig

Maggie Helwig's stunning British debut is an extraordinary war novel, a poignant and gripping story about the ripples that carry on long after the fighting is over, and about two people kept apart by history, ethics and human frailty. Daniel is a war correspondent in Bosnia, a loner and a truthteller, up to a point, careless with everything except his sources. Lili is a translator, based in Paris, careful and meticulous, but when she finds herself working for the war crimes tribunal in The Hague, fails to declare their fragile relationship. Between Mountains is a compelling novel of immediacy and power, about love and language, truth and lies, war crimes and the weight of history - with a vividly evoked and frighteningly real supporting cast of war criminals, lawyers, refugees, journalists and a mad preacher.
