Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Begley writes with a contemplative wisdom that permeates his work....[He] has captured some of the wispy melancholy of midcentury fiction, and this feat in itself is mellifluous to both ear and spirit."

THE BOSTON GLOBE

A man without a country or family, a Holocaust survivor, Ben long ago left the wreckage of Europe and recreated himself as a brilliant financier. He rejects the comforts of love and is shocked to discover Veronique--beautiful, unwisely married, and all that Ben suddenly knows he has always needed. In their stolen hours and weekends, their deep commitment to one another fills their lives as nothing ever has. But the question remains: Can Ben finally take what he has always denied himself...?

From the author of WARTIME LIES.

Synopsis:

Ben, a world-famous financier and a Holocaust survivor who has tried to put the past behind him, rejects the conventionality of love--until he meets Ve+a7ronique, a beautiful married woman. Reprint.
