AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Romance and disillusion. A young girl and a 30 year old artist fall in love one summer, but he leaves her to retrun to the city, his career and his rich fiancee. Seven years later, a successful widower, he returns to claim her but her love has died and she is a successful author who offers him only her friendship. Bitter-sweet touches but conventional language diminishes impact. (PB)
