Set in a small town in France in the 1930s, this is a tale of hopelessly romantic love -- moving and powerful in its impediments. Convincing characters in an evocative setting propelled by superior writing.

Never finished this book. Everything about it seems too dated. Maybe the author is trying to be clever by invoking another era but I just didn't buy into the mores and sensitivities of the era.
