the book jacket: A couple begins an intense affair, only to be separated
abruptly -- and perhaps irrevocably -- in this surprising, suspenseful love
story. Zeke is twenty-nine, a man who looks like a Raphael angel and who earns
his living as a painter and carpenter in London. He reads the world a little
differently from most people and has trouble with such ordinary activities as
lying, deciphering expressions, recognizing faces. Verona is thirty-seven,
confident, hot-tempered, a modestly successful radio show host, unmarried, and
seven months pregnant. When the two meet in a house that Zeke is renovating,
they fall in love, only to be separated less than twenty-four hours later when
Verona leaves abruptly, without explanation, for Boston.....
Comment: This is a love story with a twist - no easy answers, no assured happy ending - just two odd people ...
