i really tried to get into this, but i just couldn't. i guess her writing style just isn't for me.
Interesting, complex characters. Written in flash-backs, it explores the lives of two very different people and an unconventional kind of love affair.
A pretty good tale. As the back of the book notes, the author is married to another author STEPHEN KING, who helped outline and edit the novel---and maybe it shows!
From back cover: By all rights, they never should have known each other. Torie Christopher was a member of the Maine aristocracy, reckless and willful, wed to a blue-blooded doctor, and enjoying all the pleasures and privileges of wealth and position. Joe Nevers was of the working class, married to a woman determined to keep him in his place, and with only his rock-hard strength and unbending pride to depend on for dignity. Now, in a night filled with all the phantoms of the past and all the shifting shapes of love, Torie and Joe have to strip bare the truth about themselves and their lives...for they share secrets no one else knows...
