The Evening Of The Holiday, Paperback / softback Book

The Evening Of The Holiday Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Passionate undercurrents sweep in and out of this eloquent novel about a love affair in the summer countryside in Italy and its inevitable end.

It takes place in a setting of pastoral beauty during a time of celebration -- a festival.

Sophie, half English, half Italian, meets Tancredi, an Italian who is separated from his wife and family.

In telling the story of their love affair, author Shirley Hazzard punctures the placid surface of polite Italian society to reveal the intense yearnings and surprising responses in sophisticated people caught up in emotions they do not always understand.
