Selected by Indie Booksellers for the March 2009 Indie Next List
“Henry Dorn loses his wife and grown son in an accident in 1921 and, a year later, embarks for Amsterdam, where he meets the young and entrancing Lydia Pearce. In After You've Gone, the language is clean and precise with not a word wasted, the characters well drawn and interesting, and the plot just complex enough to keep the reader enthralled. In short, a very fine novel.”
-- Penny McConnel, Norwich Bookstore, Norwich, VT


Description
From a hardscrabble Nova Scotia fishing town to a women's college in New York to a 1920's Europe alive with the unbuttoning of sexuality but scarred by war, "After You've Gone" is a gorgeous tale spanning several pivotal decades in American life.
