Oliver's Story

By Erich Segal

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

'It takes someone very special to forget the love of your life.' The poignant and unforgettable sequel to the international literary and major motion picture phenomenon, LOVE STORY.

Oliver Barrett IV found his true soulmate when he met and fell in love with Jenny Cavilleri. Their love was magical, exhilarating . . . though heartbreakingly brief, it was enough to last a lifetime. Or so Oliver told himself.

Two years have passed since Jenny was taken from him, and Oliver truly believes he will never love again. Then one day Marcie - beautiful and mysterious - enters his world . . . and suddenly the future holds a golden new promise.

With all the excitement and emotion that made LOVE STORY a worldwide bestseller, here is a stirring romantic novel that sweeps from New York's fashionable East Side to a snowy Christmas in Massachusetts to a shattering moment of truth in exotic Hong Kong - the story of one young man's journey out of sadness and into love.

Elizabeth H. Winthrop

Elizabeth H. Winthrop

As the summer begins, the Jacobs family arrive at their holiday home in Massachusetts, only to find that a truck has been driven into their water-filled quarry and a young man has drowned. It is a dreadful echo of another recent death: the suicide of Joan and Anders' eldest daughter. When details emerge of the man's identity, fifteen-year-old Eve becomes obsessed with proving that his death wasn't an accident, while her little sister unwittingly adopts his orphaned dog. Joan is more interested in tracking down the drowned man's mother, while Anders, who cannot talk about his own daughter's death, doesn't want to get involved. As they simultaneously try to adjust to their own loss and absorb this apparent tragedy, each in their own way confronts life's normal hurdles - growing up, sustaining a marriage, facing the future. Here are characters so vividly imagined and drawn with such emotional insight that they leap off the page. When the summer ends, you will not want to let them go.

Inside, Outside

Herman Wouk
Authors:
Herman Wouk

Herman Wouk's classic novel moves on from the grand themes which have won him international acclaim - war, the fate of nations, and the indomitable spirit of man - to the quest for identity, in the clash between the Inside of faith and family and the Outside of the glittery American dream. Inside, Outside sweeps through more than sixty years, from the pre-war, pre-atomic innocence of the twenties and thirties to the turbulent immediate past. Scenes of rollicking family humour and show-business comedy alternate with sudden tragedy, the spectacle of a falling President and the explosion of war. A bittersweet first love, relived after forty years, and a tense secret wartime mission between Washington and Jerusalem call forth the author's renowned storytelling gift. An intense, personal book about intimate things, Inside, Outside is a merry, poignant, sometimes ribald picture of the American Jewish experience, by a master at the peak of his powers.
