A National Bestseller In these beautifully rendered novellas, the writer introduces three women, each of whom tells the story of the lover who most altered her life. In Immaculate Man he is a priest, a virgin at the age of forty-three. In Living at Home he is an Italian war correspondent who wants nothing but her body and the sanctuary of their house - until he is seized by news of another revolution. And in The Rest of Life, he is an intellectual teenager inspired by the Romantic poets to make a suicide pact. He is remembered six decades later by the woman with whom he made the pact. She decided to live. "Mary Gordon's fiction is the work of a humane, masterly novelist . . . [whose] great gift is making us care about her people." - Newsweek "Each of the three novellas gives us a woman's love story . . . beautifully written and moving." - The Boston Globe

display_description Three masterful tales of women in the grips of complicated and dangerous loves The Rest of Life is comprised of three spellbinding novellas about women in love. In Immaculate Man, an agnostic New York divorceĢŒ finds herself in thrall to an unexpected passion for a Catholic priest-who is also desired by a former superior-and who becomes unmoored by the affair. Living at Home is set in London, and depicts the strange union between an English woman-a thrice-divorced doctor who works with autistic children-and an Italian man-a free-roaming journalist addicted to high-risk assignments. The title novella centers on the memories of an elderly Italian woman, recalling her days as a girl in the bloom of first love, who embarked on a suicide pact with her boyfriend, but was the only one not to follow through.
