"A deftly researched, compassionate rendering of Bonnie Parker, one of the most fascinating women in recent history. With great empathy and skill Walsh portrays Bonnie's collision course with disaster, allowing us to ride shotgun all the way. And what a compelling ride it is " - Ariel Lawhon, author of I Was Anastasia
Texas: 1931. It's the height of the Great Depression, and Bonnie is miles from Clyde. He's locked up, and she's left waiting, their dreams of a life together dwindling every day.
When Clyde returns from prison damaged and distant, unable to keep a job, and dogged by the cops, Bonnie knows the law will soon come for him. But there's only one road forward for her.
If the world won't give them their American Dream, they'll just have to take it.
"Compulsively readable, Walsh's prose hooks you from the beginning as Bonnie and Clyde come alive for the reader, their exploits leaping off the page. Atmospheric, action-packed, and richly detailed, Side by Side will delight historical fiction fans." - Chanel Cleeton, author of Next Year in Havana
