Two former lovers reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster's Wife.
Deeply affecting and compulsively listenable, The Headmaster's Wife was a breakout book for Thomas Christopher Greene. Now Greene returns with a beautifully written, emotional new novel perfect for his growing audience.
Twenty-one years after they were driven apart by circumstances beyond their control, two former lovers have a chance encounter on a Manhattan street. What follows is a tense, suspenseful exploration of the many facets of enduring love.
Told from alternating points of view through time, If I Forget You tells the story of Henry Gold, a poet whose rise from poverty embodies the American dream, and Margot Fuller, the daughter of a prominent, wealthy family, and their unlikely, star-crossed love affair, complete with the secrets they carry when they find each other for the second time. Written in lyrical prose, If I Forget You is at once a great love story; a novel of marriage, manners, and family; a meditation on the nature of art; and a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose and how the choices we make can change our lives forever.
"Thomas Christopher Greene's If I Forget You is the most moving and beautifully-written love story I've read since Cold Mountain." (Howard Frank Mosher, author of God's Kingdom)

Very well written!
Loved this book. A story about Margot and Henry who meet in college and fall in love but because of Margot's father, their relationship could not continue. Frankly, I felt Henry wasn't treated fairly at all. Twenty years later, Margot and Henry meet again and you wonder if they will end up together again or once again go their separate ways. Told in alternating points of view from the past and present by Margot and Henry. Beautifully done. Enjoyed the narration in the audio book.
