An extremely well written character study of two American academics in London whose paths cross as each finds love and passion. Virginia Miner, a 50ish unmarried tenured professor, is an Anglophile on leave to reearch a book. Fred Turner, a teacher at the same university, is recently separated, flat broke and miserable in this city where rain never seems to end. The book starts slowly, but is a terrific read.
