Good book. Very easy read.

MedinaReads Jul 10, 2015

This is a perfect book to read in the summer. The privileged families in this book travel between Europe and the affluent East coast with frequency and ease. It's a sumptuous and sensuous book of art, beaches, food, wine, parties, and travel. The main character "falls in love" with a free spirited girl when he was a young boy. The obsessive and unhealthy love affair continues on and off through much of his early adulthood, affecting his life in many ways. Lovely writing and scenic interludes in this book will take you away. Recommended by N.S., Brunswick Library, MCDL
