Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Irving is one of America's most original and memorable literary talents, and amongst his novels are the bestselling titles "The Cider House Rules" and "A Prayer For Owen Meany". This is the paperback edition of his latest highly acclaimed novel. "Every word is made to tell with maximum force." "Sunday Telegraph".

Synopsis:

Ruth Cole is a complex, often self-contradictory character - a "difficult" woman. By no means is she conventionally "nice", but she will never be forgotten. Her story is told in three parts, each focusing on a critical time in her life.
