Review

"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)

"On Green Dolphin Street is one of the most heart-shakingly accurate depictions of how it feels to be female and in love that I have ever read" (Julie Myerson Observer)

"A real page turner...superbly done...another winner" (Sunday Telegraph)

Synopsis

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.
