Additional Information

"Thomas Christopher Greene's If I Forget You is the most moving and beautifully-written love story I've read since Cold Mountain."—Howard Frank Mosher, author of God's Kingdom

Two former lovers reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster's Wife

Deeply affecting and compulsively readable, The Headmaster's Wife was a breakout book for Thomas Christopher Greene. Now, Greene returns with a beautifully written, emotional new novel perfect for his growing audience.

Twenty-one years after they were driven apart by circumstances beyond their control, two former lovers have a chance encounter on a Manhattan street. What follows is a tense, suspenseful exploration of the many facets of enduring love. Told from altering points of view through time, If I Forget You tells the story of Henry Gold, a poet whose rise from poverty embodies the American dream, and Margot Fuller, the daughter of a prominent, wealthy family, and their unlikely, star-crossed love affair, complete with the secrets they carry when they find each other for the second time.

Written in lyrical prose, If I Forget You is at once a great love story, a novel of marriage, manners, and family, a meditation on the nature of art, a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose, and how the choices we make can change our lives forever.

Anyone who's ever fallen in love in their 20s and lost contact with a person who meant the world to them will savor this lyrical, sensitive book. While the idea of reuniting a lifetime later isn't original, Greene's characters are unique and vivid and the writing is fluid and poetic in places. It gets 4 stars instead of 5 from me because it's more like a novella than a novel. Although the author certainly ties up loose strings, readers may be left wanting more, reluctant to leave the story and the characters.

My Thoughts: The alternating stories of Henry and Margot flipped between the present, with their chance encounter in 2012, to 1991, when the two of them fell in love.

They came from different worlds, and I love this kind of story. So much divided them that... Read more
This was a good read, I enjoyed the characters and watching the plot develop. It's amazing how circumstances determine the happenings in our lives. For example what if their social backgrounds were similar, what might have happened. Being in the right place at the right time determines so much. I loved the book.
