The celebrated author of "I Was Amelia Earhart "brings us a brilliant, kaleidoscopic story of human connection that soars with imagination, spirit, and Mendelsohn''s distinctive mesmerizing style.
Jane Mendelsohn, who inhabited the spirit of lost aviator Amelia Earhart in an earlier bestseller, again investigates the role which departed souls can play in contemporary life with this evocative tale about the ethereal connection between a traumatized soldier and his physical therapist. Milo was permanently paralyzed while fighting in Iraq, and now his psyche is as damaged as his spinal cord, but when he reluctantly starts his arduous rehab under the guidance of a former dancer named Honor, they each experience otherworldly sensations whenever she touches him. Their strange connection allows them to perceive a triad of tragic love stories from the past--a Turkish eunuch and concubine from the 17th century, a New York sax player and his infertile wife from the 1930s, and a Vietnam-era army officer and his wife, a prominent photographer. As Milo and Honor obsessively immerse themselves in these mysterious romances, they begin to notice similarities and patterns emerging, but they may be too distracted by the details of these past liaisons to understand the stories' overlying moral, which has deep implications for their present affection for one another.
