I just completed a book in 3 days, which is almost unheard of here. It usually takes me weeks to finish one, since I only read about 30 minutes per day. This book was different. I was captured completely within 30 pages and I simply could not put it down until my eyes closed despite my efforts to keep them open!
"The Lovers" by Morris West, "Is a brilliantly suspenseful tale of love stolen, love lost, and in the end astonishingly rediscovered. A poignant and intimate novel by a master storyteller", said Mary Higgins Clark.
That makes it sound like only a love story, but there is something for everyone here; betrayal, suspense and murder, set on the seas around Italy, in an aura of multinational intrigue and power.
Some of West's other books are "The Devil's Advocate", "The Shoes of the Fisherman" and "The Clowns of God". Read about Morris West here:
This book was published in 1993, and I bought it at Goodwill for $1. At the same time, I bought another one, "Masterclass", published in 1988, and I am starting it soon. If it holds my attention the same way that "The Lovers" did, I may not be around here for a few days....LOL.
