Published author and poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is also touring Europe but under much different circumstances. Recently widowed, he is gathering research for a new publication that he hopes will secure his professorship at Harvard College. Befriended by the Appleton family while visiting Switzerland, Henry is introduced to Fanny and sees in her a kindred spirit, a lover of language and literature and high ideals. He is in love. Fanny, however, is uncertain. He is from a much lower social class and is older than she is. How could such a relationship ever thrive? Could a book of Henry's poetry, personally delivered, persuade Fanny to believe in a love that lasts forever and forever?

I love to read stories based on true characters and enjoyed knowing more about Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's courtship with his wife. It did get a bit tedious but then it took place over seven years. I always appreciate when an author explains fact and fiction in building a story at the end. This was a very enjoyable read.
