I am not a big fan of Hemingway. He is a great author and poet but for the most part his work just doesnt appeal to me. I only read this book because it was required for a class that I took in Venice.

This 1950 story was inspired by time Hemingway spent in Venice, Italy in 1948, after an absence of thirty years.
In this story, an old army colonel has a passionate but almost platonic relationship with a young countess. Despite the difference in their ages, they are madly in love with each other, and spend all their time together, often fantasizing about their future together, traveling and raising a family, even though each knows that it will not happen.
A poignant story about a real love, a a disparaged love, but a real relationship nevertheless, one that is good for both people, told with Hemingway's fast-paced prose and eye for details.
