From the acclaimed writer of the beloved "Clara Callan" comes a memorable new novel about first loves, love-after-love, and the end of things, set during summer in Québec City. James Hillyer, a retired university professor, tries to locate the woman he fell in love with so many years ago on a summer trip to Québec and through the magic of the Internet he is able to find her. But Odette's present existence seems to be haunted by ghosts from her own past. The collision of past and present leads to violence nobody could have predicted and alters the lives of James and Odette forever. "Nightfall" skillfully captures the way in which our past is ever-present in our minds as we grow older, casting its spell of lost loves, and the innocent joys of youth over the realities of aging and death.

This is a short and interesting novel - a quick read. However you must read his novel October first as this one is really a sequel.
