Summary
Over the course of some fifteen years, beginning in graduate school, Claire Marvel has a profound effect on Julian Rose, as they enjoy a two-year romance, break up, marry others, and build separate lives for themselves, before a chance encounter and Claire's death, an apparent suicide, forces Julian to reexamine both their lives. By the author of Reservation Road. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A young man and woman meet, love each other, and are consumed. It’s a story as old as romance itself, but in this enthralling novel John Burnham Schwartz tells it with heart-stopping new immediacy. In the middle of a rainstorm Julian Rose, a self-effacing Harvard graduate student, takes refuge beneath a girl’s yellow umbrella. The girl, the woman, is Claire Marvel, lovely, mercurial, mired in family tragedy. She is the last person someone like Julian should fall in love with. But he does.

What ensues is a great and difficult passion strewn with obstacles–not least those arising from Claire and Julian’s disparate characters. And as these young people find and lose each other, then seek each other anew, Schwartz places romantic love within an entire continuum of attachments that require the full reserves of our openness and courage.
