"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 KingdomTwo former lovers reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster's WifeDeeply affecting and compulsively readable, 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 altering 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, a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose, and how the choices we make can change our lives forever."

As these two characters search for each other in one way or another all their lives, I was riveted by their secrets and the desire that sustained them. Greene writes his characters so well and portrays Henry's longing so beautifully that the reader can't help but be touched by their predicament. This absorbing and unexpected love story was a delight to consume. Claire Benedict, Bear Pond Books. Montpelier, VT. I thought it was wonderful and was very surprised! Greene always does that, doesn t he? You have no idea that anything like that had happened and then he springs it on you. He s a great writer and I don t know how he has time to write.
