Spine ends lightly bumped, green ink line on bottom edge, remnant of a sticker blacked out with ink on front free endpaper. Unclipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn.; 'Can love and honor conquer all? Mark Helprin’s enchanting and sweeping novel springs from this deceptively simple question, and from the sight of a beautiful young woman, dressed in white, on the Staten Island Ferry, at the beginning of summer, 1946.

Postwar New York glows with energy. Harry Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines in Europe, has returned home to run the family business. Yet his life is upended by a single encounter with the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale, as they each fall for the other in an instant.

Harry and Catherine pursue one another in a romance played out in Broadway theaters, Long Island mansions, the offices of financiers, and the haunts of gangsters. Catherine’s choice of Harry over her longtime fiancé endangers Harry’s livelihood and eventually threatens his life. In the end, it is Harry’s extraordinary wartime experience that gives him the character and means to fight for Catherine, and risk everything.'; While set in 1946 New York this book does spend a significant amount of time in World War II Europe. Recommended for those that can handle the WWII details and some gang violence and for those that enjoyed Helprin's "A Winters Tale". Image is actual copy on offer.
