Vero and her husband, Shane, have moved out of the sweet suite above his parents’ garage and found themselves smack in the middle of adulthood—two kids, two cars, two jobs. They are not coping well. In response to their looming domestic breakdown, Vero and Shane get live-in help with their sons—a woman from the Philippines named Ligaya (which means happiness); the children call her LiLi. Vero justifies LiLi’s role in their home by insisting that she is part of their family, and she goes to great lengths in order to ease her conscience. But differences persist; Vero grapples with her overextended role as a mother and struggles to keep her marriage passionate, while LiLi silently bears the burden of a secret she left behind at home.

Quotes & Awards

  • Between asks nuanced questions of and avoids pat answers on a thorny dilemma facing many families today.”

    Globe and Mail

  • “Darkly funny and elegantly written…Abdou is an important voice in Canadian fiction, and this strong new work will enlarge her already substantial body of devoted readers.”

    Vancouver Sun

  • “In Between, it is the women who share the greatest burdens, yet still find it difficult to connect across lines of class and culture. Abdou has stared fraught subject matter in the face and handled it with grace and humor. Her refreshing novel sympathetically reveals women as they are, flaws and all.”

    Quill and Quire
