The Go-Between by L. P. Hartley

An invitation for young Leo to join a school friend at Brandham Hall - a world of privilege far removed from his own - for the scorchingly hot summer of 1900 appears innocuous, but Leo soon finds himself drawn into a dangerous, deceitful world of adult intrigue when asked to act as a go-between for two illicit lovers. The tragedy that ensues will reverberate for decades to come.

A haunting novel about the strange journey from childhood to adulthood, The Go-Between is a truly unforgettable classic.
