- Not available
Thirty years later, a twenty-six-year-old researcher arrives in the village, a Leningrad native who is fascinated by both the still-beautiful woman and her rare story. Day by day, little by little, he falls in love with her, but how can he compete with a ghost that will not die? Beautifully but powerfully told, The Woman Who Waited is a bittersweet love story that is sure to move readers for generations.
"Sustains a tone of poignancy--think of such contemporary examples as Philip Roth's The Dying Animal and James Salter's A Sport and a Pastime."-- Washington Post
