Summary
  • Etna Bliss has just moved to the New England town where her uncle teaches college when her life is transformed in a single stroke. She is dining ia a hotel downtown when a fire forces her to escape to the snowy streets outside. Amid the smoke and chaos standing under a streetlight is the man who was dining in the same room-a man who is so overwhelmed by the sight of her that he rebuilds his life around a single goal: to marry Etna Bliss.

  • Riding a train south many years later, he unwinds his memories of the years that followed and struggles to understand the mystery his life became on that night. This is no ordinary tale of obsession. All he ever wanted is a story about different kinds of love, different ideas of what love is, and how lives can be strained to breaking over those differences. It is a powerful exploration of the music and silences of family life, the unhinging forces of desire, the wrenching power of secrets unrevealed, and the bewildering territories of betrayal and loss. Written with the maturity, beauty, intelligence, and grace that are Anita Shreve's hallmarks, all he ever wanted is a story that powerfully conjures another time and place, peopled by unforgettable characters as real as the emotions that bring them together
