Here is a dazzling
story about marriage, forgiveness, and chances not taken by the bestselling
author of Body Surfing and A Wedding in December.
While at a literary
festival, poet Linda Fallon happens across a man she hasn’t seen in thirty-five years,
fellow poet Thomas Janes, whose fame has grown during a decade of seclusion.
But this is no chance meeting. Thomas knew Linda was scheduled to appear, and
he chose this moment to reestablish contact with a woman he had passionately
pursued years earlier. Their affair was disastrous for them both, a turning
point in their lives, and the damage they caused still haunts them both.
The Last Time They
Met moves backward in time
from Linda at age fifty-two to explore her life years earlier, at age twenty-six and, still
earlier, at seventeen, when a chance encounter on a rocky beach bound her and Thomas
fatefully together. Anita Shreve examines the extraordinary resonance a single
choice, even a single word, can have over the course of a lifetime.
