Présentation de l'éditeur

From the bestselling author of The Women’s Room comes a resonant novel about love and marriage

Dolores Durer, a divorced English professor and the mother of two adult children, has sworn off love after a series of disastrous affairs. Electronics executive Victor Morrissey is in England to open a branch office. He has four children and is unhappily married.

From the moment they meet—on a train—their connection is instant and passionate. The two Americans abroad embark on an affair that will have consequences in both their lives. Each carries baggage. Dolores is haunted by family tragedy; Victor is tormented by marital estrangement. Driven by an impending sense of urgency, knowing their time together is finite, they struggle to transform their pasts into a hopeful future.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best books about broken hearts 24 juillet 2000
Par JulieS - Publié sur
I first read this book many years ago when my first serious relationship ended. I would definitely say that I saw myself a lot in the characters. This book talks a lot about the different roles of men and women in a love affair, and how the woman somehow always ends up doing more of the work. I think some people might say this is outdated, but there are some truths in this novel. But despite her cynicism, the female protagonist still embarks in this love affair and falls deeply in love with this man. This book is at turns didatic, romantic, and sad, and very enjoyable to read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who just got out of a relationship as I think that's the best time to read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extraordinary! 14 octobre 2012
Par Paula James ( - Publié sur
This is a remarkable book--an unrelenting, brutally honest and insightful examination of the dynamics of gender relationships in a patriarchal world. And also a compelling, beautifully written novel. I notice that, astonishingly, it is hardly mentioned in articles about Dr. French. I have a Ph.D. in English, have taught at the university level, am 69 years old, and have spent my adult life reading the best fiction I could get my hand on. That said, this is one of the best I've come across. Dr. French has chosen intimate gender relationships as her topic and has brought more intelligence and courage to the subject than any other novelist I've come across. And she's done so while still telling a completely absorbing tale of love, grief, fury, and survival.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intense picture of the way a woman feels 23 mars 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
I read the book after a long hesitation, but sometimes as I was reading it, I was gasping, since some of the things I was reading could have been my thoughts. But there was also a part I didn't like because it was too black and white. But I think women should read this book to understand the relation between men and women better.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Feminist Point of View 24 octobre 2013
Par Magsaxxo - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Dolores meets Victor on a train, they seduce each other without a word being spoken, fall into bed and embark on an affair loaded with baggage. They fight the baggage of many relationships and Victor's marriage in their relationship while trying to live a lifetime in the year they have together before returning to their previous lives. They fight and they love intensely. They tear each other up and put each other back together again. Both have damaged lives filled with tragedy, pain and moments, moments of pure joy, the moments that keep them moving forward.

I found much of it stereotypical, as in Delores' references to all men, but understand the author is a feminist and is passionate about her subject. Her passion and pain screamed from this novel, so often I hurt with her.

I believe Delores couldn't live with men but could not live without them and could not accept this in herself and perceived it as a flaw. The novel read a bit like Women are From Venus, Men From Mars, and should be required reading for any woman or man looking for a relationship.

Though as I neared the end of the book I, like Victor became bored with Delores' diatribes, she made her point and made her point and yet again made her point.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Multifaceted Book 10 septembre 2010
Par SerenaBlackCat - Publié sur
Initially, I didn't think I'd like the book because I was turned off by the main character's use of absolutes; "all men" do [oppressive things], "women always" get the bum deal. It seemed like the story of a woman with a very big axe to grind; she got upset over small details, and I thought someone so embittered shouldn't go into a relationship.

Reading the entire book I would say her character, who was brilliant, passionate, as well as irritating at times, was very well illustrated. Further into the story we are told exactly what has made her so bitter, and I can't blame her--lots of people have become embittered over much less. We are also told her lover's story, and while he wasn't attentive to his wife and children, I felt that the book primarily blamed him for his wife's fate when she also had her part in it. Basically she NEVER told him her wishes, and then was angry that he didn't honor them--sure he didn't listen much, but she could have at least made an attempt to communicate, and if he was still neglectful, then the blame would be on him. I also thought it was unfair to directly blame his chauvinism for her ultimate condition, as he couldn't have predicted it.

This book can be looked at in a number of ways. It can be seen as a feminist statement, but it is also more than that. It is a debate between two points of view, both of them hold their own, and one side is not shown as clearly right. The views of the characters can be seen as simply their own views, and their arguments can be seen as things that couples go through in a relationship. For the most part, the relationship was realistic, except I kept thinking that most people fight about much more inane subjects.

Like other of French's novels, the portrayal of woman's plight can show us the things that have changed for women, as well as the things that haven't. Women in the present don't always just go along with men and some have the primary career in the family. Women don't always get the bum deal in divorce cases and breakups, and some men have been manipulated in the way that women are portrayed as manipulated in this book. Most of all, I don't think it is viewed as acceptable for men to have affairs and not women, and in some liberal circles, like polyamory, I think there is even an unspoken, probably unconscious prejudice that promiscuous women are enjoying sexual freedom, whereas promiscuous men are still kind of being womanizers. The main difference between then and now is that while there is still sexism in our society and the things she writes about still happen, I don't see these things as universal truths about our entire society anymore.
