This novel opens in the autumn of 1979, with teenage Eveline on the cusp of womanhood, and follows into her 20s as Hamman explores themes of love and loss, trust and betrayal, innocence and maturity. This is an incredibly intense and passionate book; it's romantic in the grand sense, a rich, affecting experience. It's completely entrancing, and while you don't want it to end, you still feel tremendous satisfaction at the finish.
