Description

The Mathematics of Love is a poignant chronicle of two people, separated by centuries, whose lives--amazingly, impossibly--become interwoven in a brilliant tapestry of tragedy, memory, and time. Following alternate but intimately connected stories--of a curious, promiscuous teenager in her season of exile and awakening in the English countryside in 1976, and a nineteenth-century soldier damaged on the fields of Waterloo, struggling to find his way back to life with the help of a compassionate, extraordinary woman--Emma Darwin's breathtaking narrative brilliantly evokes the horrors of war, the pain of loss, the heat of passion, and the enduring power of love.
