Either Side of Winter

(2005)
A novel by

 
 
In Fall we see the tentative beginnings of an unlikely romance - between a schoolteacher and a wealthy, drifting former graduate. In Winter we hear the story of her colleague, whose brief fling produced, as he now learns, seventeen years too late, a daughter. Then the daughter's best friend, her love affair with a teacher and the story of her dying father take us through Spring and Summer. This is a moving and elegiac picture of people whose lives are inextricably linked by circumstance, community and a need to be loved. Touched by wry humour, its achievement is to capture Manhattan in microcosm through a series of remarkable, moving and tender portraits.
