"A beautiful and moving love story" (Mail on Sunday)
"A novel about adultery, jazz and alcohol-full of good things, of the intensity of initially thwarted desire, of the atmosphere of a new era coming alive, of the poignancy of things past rings precisely true - suave and fluent" (Sunday Times)
"Both tense and affection... At the end one releases the breath one has been unconsciously holding, tribe to a writer of considerable skill and ambition. A modern epic" (Anita Brookner Spectator)

America, 1959. With two young children she adores, loving parents back in London, and an admired husband, Charlie, working at the British embassy in Washington, the world seems an effervescent place of parties, jazz and family happiness to Mary van der Linden. But the Eisenhower years are ending, and 1960 brings the presidential battle between two ambitious senators: John Kennedy and Richard Nixon. But when Frank, an American newspaper reporter, enters their lives Mary embarks on a passionate affair, all the while knowing that in the end she must confront an impossible decision.See all Product description

Although a little slow to get started I found myself increasing pulled into the world of Mary, Frank, and Charlie. Their emotions are so real you could touch them... and the ending, the ending... I found myself racing the last pages, just hoping, just hoping
This is a brilliant novel, and one of the best I have read in many a long year
The storyline follows the lives of 3 people Charlie and Mary and Frank and how their relationships mingle. It touches on the Viatnamese and Korean conflict as well.
Well written with enough of a human story interest to counter the informative lines.
