A new Collection edition of this superbly crafted narrative, in which a man searches for the truth about his uncle's love affair, only to find love himself

Pierre thought he knew his Uncle Charles well: he had worked with him on a daily basis for fifteen years, assisting the austere art historian in his studies. Yet after Charles' death, Pierre finds a diary in which his uncle confesses to a secret, heartbreaking love affair. Pierre's search for the truth leads him to Judith, the woman whom his uncle so passionately loved - and when he meets her daughter Sarah, he finds that his own life will be changed forever.
