Love in the Present Tense was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick in 2007.  This is better.  It follows some thirty years in the life of a baby abandoned in a wood and of the man who found him, lost him to the child’s grandmother, and then found him again.  The child is a delinquent, the man a patient, realistic fellow, their story is related in chunks focusing on each in turn, but continuous, in real time, unbroken and totally engaging.  In a smooth flowing, economic style you are drawn in and need to know what happens.  A wonderful book.

Years pass and Nathan assumes that the old lady has not kept her promise, until one day an angry, troubled boy arrives on his doorstep with a suitcase . . .
