9780151314614: Where or When

When Charles Callahan chances on a newspaper photograph of Sian Richards, a woman he loved when they were both only thirteen, he is hardly in a position to do anything about it. He has been faithfully married for years and his Rhode Island real estate business has been hit hard by the recession. He is scrambling to stave off bankruptcy and save his house. But Charles cannot resist the hand of fate. He writes to Sian, now a poet living with a family of her own on a farm in upstate New York.

Three decades after they last saw each other, the two lovers meet. Powerfully drawn together once again, Charles and Sian are forced to come to terms with the nature of erotic love and betrayal, moral quandaries in an age of shifting values, and the elusive nature of time. Struggling to reclaim what once they lost, they set in motion a passionate and tumultuous series of events that moves to a shocking conclusion.

Product Description:

A story of obsessive love, by the author of "Eden Close" and "Strange Fits of Passion".

They begin a passionate affair.

Review:

"Throughout this finely wrought book, Ms. Shreve manages to keep the reader suspended between despair and hope for Sian and Charles. But Where or When is more than just an exquisitely written novel. It is also a gripping yarn."-The New York Times Book Review "Ms. Shreve writes with a delicate restraint that lends force and immediacy to this somberly romantic story."-The Wall Street Journal
