Blood Brothers Summary

Blood Brothers by Willy Russell

As they grow up, and despite their different circumstances, the two become friends but remain ignorant of their true relationship.
At the age of 18, Eddie leaves for university. They are both attracted to the same girl, but Eddie won’t say anything and encourages Mickey to ask her out. When he returns home from university, the two are married and the girl is pregnant but life has taken a turn for the worse for Mickey.
The drama that follows is tense, dramatic, and violent, and when their fraternity is revealed it comes all too late.
