Not yet rated | write a review
This isn''t a fairy tale. Valentine Schwartz had it all: his raven-haired girlfriend was the most beautiful girl in school, he came from a rich family, and his best friend, Huddie Rosen, all but worshipped him. But he wasn''t the brightest and was known for making mistakes. And no one could have foreseen him falling off the roof of his high school, in a suit of medieval armour, ending his life at the tender age of seventeen. Huddie Rosen moved on. He went to the University of Tennessee and fell in love with bluegrass music. It leads him to a new life in Europe where he starts a family. But when his family life goes sour, Huddie decides to go back to Toronto for his first visit in twenty-five years. As he begins to reconnect with his old friends, he soon finds himself wrapped up in their lives. It''s a wonder anyone was able to live without him. And as his old and new lives begin to clash, he finds himself wondering which life is better. Valentine''s Fall is a fast-paced, quick-witted novel that explores themes of remembrance, regret, and redemption.
