Francia, inizio Novecento. Sophie, una ragazza di provincia, si ritrova immersa nell'affascinante mondo della Belle Époque parigina e si innamora del pittore Édouard. Non è una storia semplice, ma il sentimento che li lega sfocia in un meraviglioso matrimonio d'amore. Una favola interrotta dallo scoppio della Grande Guerra: Édouard parte per il fronte e Sophie rimane sola nella zona occupata dai tedeschi. Quando viene a sapere che il marito è prigioniero e rischia la vita, per salvarlo offre al comandante tedesco ciò che ha di più caro: il ritratto fattole da Édouard. Quasi cent'anni dopo quel quadro è appeso in casa di Liv Halston, vedova trentenne, dono del marito prima di morire. Quale storia tormentata si cela dietro il dipinto? Un legame insospettabile lega queste due donne, separate da un secolo di storia ma unite dalla determinazione a lottare per ciò cui tengono di più. Costi quel che costi.

WATERSTONES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2013 'It's the most marvellous discovery for everyone who loves literature' Ian McEwan, BBC Radio 4 Colum McCann once called Stoner one of the great forgotten novels of the past century, but it seems it is forgotten no longer – in 2013 translations of Stoner began appearing on bestseller lists across Europe. Forty-eight years after its first, quiet publication in the US, Stoner is finally finding the wide and devoted readership it deserves. Have you read it yet? William Stoner enters the University of Missouri at nineteen to study agriculture. A seminar on English literature changes his life, and he never returns to work on his father's farm. Stoner becomes a teacher. He marries the wrong woman. His life is quiet, and after his death his colleagues remember him rarely. Yet with truthfulness, compassion and intense power, this novel uncovers a story of universal value. Stoner tells of the conflicts, defeats and victories of the human race that pass unrecorded by history, and reclaims the significance of an individual life. A reading experience like no other, itself a paean to the power of literature, it is a novel to be savoured.
