Description: During a summer weekend on the coast of Maine, at the wedding of her best friend, Ann Grant fell in love. She was twenty-five. Forty-two years later -- after three marriages and five children -- Ann Lord finds herself in the dim claustrophobia of illness, careening between lucidity and delirium and only vaguely conscious of the friends and family parading by her bedside, when the memory of that weekend returns to her with the clarity and intensity of a fever-dream. "Evening" unfolds in the rush-light of that memory, as Ann relives those three vivid days on the New England coast, with motorboats buzzing and bands playing in the night, and the devastating tragedy that followed the spectacular wedding. Here, in the surge of hope and possibility that coursed through her at twenty-five -- in a singular time of complete surrender -- Ann discovers the highest point in her life.

Superbly written and miraculously uplifting, "Evening" is a stirring exploration of time and memory, of love's transcendence and failure to transcend -- a rich testament to the depths of grief and passion, and a stunning achievement. With two novels and one short-story collection published to overwhelming critical acclaim, Susan Minot has emerged as one of the most gifted writers in America. Now, with "Evening," she gives us her most ambitious novel, a work of surpassing beauty.
