“The best John Knowles has given us since A Separate Peace, and if you remember that book you will not want to miss this one.”—John Barkham Reviews
Pete is a sensitive, handsome young war hero. Wexford is a defiant, scheming troublemaker. Their lives collide in the uneasy days of peace after World War II as senior year at the Devon School changes from a time of friendships into a stunning drama of tragic betrayal.
With the unforgettable power and simplicity that made A Separate Peace into a modern classic, this masterful companion volume by John Knowles takes us once again on a warmly nostalgic journey through the poignancy of adolescence—and gives us another landmark portrayal of the dark side of the human heart.
