Overcome by the power of memory, Ann Lord reveals a long-held secret to her concerned daughters. Constance is a content wife and mother. Nina is a restless single woman. Both are bedside when Ann calls out for the man she loved more than any other. But her daughters wonder who Harris is and what is his relation to their mother? Constance and Nina try to take stock of Ann's life as their mother is tended to by a night nurse as she journeys into her mind back to a summer weekend some fifty years before, before she was married, going from New York City to be maid of honor at the high-society Newport wedding of her dearest friend from college, Lila Wittenborn. The bride-to-be is jittery, and turns to her maid of honor rather than her own mother for support. Ann stays close to her friend, yet is even closer to Lila's irrepressible brother Buddy. Unexpected feelings surge forth once Ann meets wedding guest Harris Arden, a lifelong friend and intimate of the Wittenborn family. Ann's love for Harris will change her life, and those of her daughters, forever

If there was one thing Lilian Eliot might have said about herself, it was that she knew her own mind. She was not a flighty girl; no one in Boston in 1917 would have said that about her. She wrote her thank-you notes promptly and had some wit which saved her from being too prim. No great misfortune had darkened her eighteen years - in the distance now was the war - but otherwise there was no reason for her life not to be full and prosperous and happy. But how does happiness come? As her sophisticated aunt says, even a girl who is not an idiot can behave like one, given the right situation and the right boy. When Walter Vail, an enlisted man from New York, descends upon her, dazzling her, and then disappears, Lilian feels she will never marry. But years later she develops an interest in Gilbert Finch, an old Bostonian like herself, solitary and apart, who promises something she understands, and can love. And Walter Vail reappears

Rapture by Susan Minot( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a single interlude -- a brief encounter of old lovers; two bodies entwined on a bed at midday -- Minot defines the distance that erupts at what seems to be the height of connection, as well as the extent to which the senses deceive, and the intensely private eroticism of fantasy and the imagination. Minot's lovers are mesmerizing in their individual journeys -- one moving toward a kind of holy consummation, the other toward abnegation and blank despair. This is the wayward history of their efforts to make contact with each other while deluding themselves about the nature of the contact they're making. Graphic, erotic, provocative, Rapture is a meditation on romantic love, sex, and their reflections in the life of the mind. -- Publisher description
