Lovereading view...

Prepare to relinquish yourself to a ravishing new world in this exquisitely hypnotic read. Helprin offers you the chance to view New York from a different reality, one of disconcertingly bewitching rogues, heroically valiant horses and divinely mysterious villages. Four interlinked tales are told across several generations, where time undulates and miracles materialise out of thin air. Appearing at first to be a lovely whimsical fantasy, as you read further, you feel there is a deeper and more profound story emerging from the pages. This fascinating tale is not about the ending but the wild and incredible journey of the characters who have been poetically brought to life. This is a book to fall in love with, to embrace, to yearn for, then to return to and savour all over again. ~ Liz Robinson

The film version of A New York Winter's Tale is released in UK cinemas on Friday 21 February 2014. Click below to view the trailer.

Synopsis

A New York Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin

One night in New York, a city under siege by snow, Peter Lake attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side.

Though he thinks it is empty, the daughter of the house is home ...Thus begins the affair between this Irish burglar and Beverly Penn, a young girl dying of consumption. It is a love so powerful that Peter will be driven to stop time and bring back the dead; A New York Winter's Tale is the story of that extraordinary journey.
