John Irving's poignant and poignant story of a love that was never meant to be is heart-wrenchingly beautiful. Set in the days leading up to World War II, the novel tells the story of a young couple, Will and June, who are doomed from the start. Will is from a wealthy family and June is from a poor family. Despite their differences, the two fall in love and are determined to be together. The problem is that Will is already married and June is not yet legally allowed to marry. Will and June go through a series of difficult challenges in order to be together, but their love is unyielding. The novel vividly portrays the emotional turmoil that wartime can cause and the lengths people will go to in order to find love. The story is ultimately a beautiful testament to the power of love.; 8vo; 824 pages; MR.
