More than thirty-five years ago, Gordon Meyers, packed his belongings and reluctantly drove away, leaving behind Glenna Rising, who he couldn’t imagine living without. Decades later, Gordon has a grown son, an ex-wife, and an overwhelming desire to see Glenna again. Though she’s stunned when Gordon walks into her Manhattan office, Glenna agrees to accompany him for a drink. As the two head out into the city, they rediscover the passion that once drew them together—before it tore them apart. Comeback Love (Washington Square, $15) is an evocative journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s, and who never truly let each other go. Plumbing the depths of youth, regret, and desire, Peter Golden deftly illuminates the bonds that mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.
