By Anita Shreve

Leafing through his newspaper's literary supplement one day, Charles Callahan, a middle-aged insurance broker, spots a photograph of his first love, Sin Richards. Married, faithfully if not happily, with three daughters and a struggling business, Charles writes to Sin, a published poet, also married and mother of two children. Sin writes back, and as their correspondence develops into intimacy, three decades after their childhood affair, they agree to meet again. Swept up in the past and consumed by an obsessive love, Sin and Charles risk everything for each other, reaching across time to reclaim what they had in youth. (Catalog summary)
