Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Young Hearts Crying, Yates movingly portrays a man and a woman from their courtship and marriage in the 1950s to their divorce in the 70s, chronicling their heartbreaking attempts to reach their highest ambitions. Michael Davenport dreams of being a poet after returning home from World War II Europe, and at first he and his new wife Lucy enjoy their life together. But as the decades pass and the success of others creates an oppressive fear of failure in both Michael and Lucy, their once bright future gives way to a life of adultery and isolation. With empathy and grace, Yates creates a poignant novel of the desires and disasters of a tragic, hopeful couple.

Synopsis:

Chronicles the marriage of Harvard graduate and budding poet and playwright Michael Davenport to radiant Radcliffe graduate Lucy Blaine in 1950s Europe as it founders under the strain of Lucy's million-dollar inheritance and the struggles of Michael's writing career. Reprint.
