And in this modern time something fine and carefully crafted is salvaged from love's sorrow."-Gail Adams, author of "The Purchase of Order"'"A Love Apart" is an evocative and lush exploration of the internal and external landscapes of love and desire, in which the historical and contemporary intersect and intertwine in ways both surprising and intriguing."-Janice Eidus, author of "The Celibacy Club"Lily, a poet and Julian, a painter find themselves in 'no ordinary love affair." Their ensuing relationship weaves a timeless tapestry that both unravels the mystery of a tragic past and challenges them to understand a present passion filled with impossibility.
