the last time they met-anita shreve


I read this book some years ago and it refuses to go out of my mind...
the book explores the mysteries of love, grief, longing and .....about lives lived in the past.....
Shreve masterfully plumbs the depths of loss and longing and love and the fictions we all keep in our heads that both save us and doom us as we go about the business of our lives!

Roshni: Thank you for making this book known to us, I shall add it to my not-so-little black book of books to find and buy from my ambles around the country's fine second-hand bookshops. Thank You.
