Avevo bisogno di soldi, tanti soldi. In ballo c'era la vita di mio padre. Io però non avevo un centesimo, per arrivare a fine mese facevo la cameriera. Non avevo un amore e, diciamolo, all'amore, quello con la a maiuscola, non ci credevo neanche più tanto. Le mie storie fino ad allora erano state solo fonti di guai e delusioni. Mi hanno offerto un lavoro. Recitare il ruolo della fidanzata di uomini di successo. In pratica per un mese dovevo fingere di essere la loro compagna davanti agli occhi di tutti e in cambio ognuno di loro sarebbe stato disposto a pagarmi centomila dollari. 12 mesi, 12 città, 12 uomini ricchi, famosi, inarrivabili, 12 ambienti esclusivi, 12 guardaroba diversi. Più di un milione di dollari. Il sesso, chiariamoci, non faceva parte degli accordi. Quello dipendeva e dipende sempre solo da me. L'amore neanche quello faceva parte del piano. Ma intanto quello non dipende da nessuno... Gennaio, Los Angeles, uno sceneggiatore con un corpo sexy quanto la sua mente. Febbraio, Seattle, un artista francese in cerca della sua musa. Marzo, Chicago, un ex pugile imprenditore dal cuore spaventato. Tutti uomini da sogno. Che poi sono persone. Intriganti, fragili, che hanno paure, segreti e verità nascoste. Loro hanno scelto me. Per un mese sono entrati nella mia vita. Tutti mi hanno lasciato qualcosa. E uno mi sta chiedendo di cambiare le regole del gioco... ma l'amore, tutti lo sanno, di regole non ne ha. Ho intrapreso questo viaggio perché era l'unico modo per salvare la vita di mio padre. Mi sono fidata, ho buttato il cuore oltre l'ostacolo. Ed è iniziata la favola. Il viaggio ha salvato la mia, di vita.

"Thomas Christopher Greene's If I Forget You is the most moving and beautifully-written love story I've read since Cold Mountain."—Howard Frank Mosher, author of God's Kingdom Two former lovers reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster's Wife Deeply affecting and compulsively readable, The Headmaster's Wife was a breakout book for Thomas Christopher Greene. Now, Greene returns with a beautifully written, emotional new novel perfect for his growing audience. Twenty-one years after they were driven apart by circumstances beyond their control, two former lovers have a chance encounter on a Manhattan street. What follows is a tense, suspenseful exploration of the many facets of enduring love. Told from altering points of view through time, If I Forget You tells the story of Henry Gold, a poet whose rise from poverty embodies the American dream, and Margot Fuller, the daughter of a prominent, wealthy family, and their unlikely, star-crossed love affair, complete with the secrets they carry when they find each other for the second time. Written in lyrical prose, If I Forget You is at once a great love story, a novel of marriage, manners, and family, a meditation on the nature of art, a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose, and how the choices we make can change our lives forever.

A Boston Globe Best Book of the Year In this breakout standalone novel of suspense in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on a Train, a woman agrees to help an old boyfriend who has been framed for murder—but begins to suspect that she is the one being manipulated. Twenty years ago she ruined his life. Now she has the chance to save it. Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene ever since the shooting of his wife Molly by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman in last night’s party dress, barefoot, enjoying a champagne picnic alone, reading his favorite novel. Everything about her reminds him of what he used to have with Molly. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a message on a popular website after he mentions the encounter. Days later, that same beautiful stranger responds and invites Jack to meet her in person at the waterfront. That’s when Jack’s world falls apart. Olivia Randall is one of New York City’s best criminal defense lawyers. When she hears that her former fiancé, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide—and that one of the victims was connected to his wife’s murder—there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him—and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, to absolve herself of guilt from a tragic decision, a secret she has held for twenty years. But as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?
