    New York in 1947 glows with postwar energy. Harry Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines in Europe, returns home to run the family business. In a single, magical encounter on the Staten Island ferry, the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale falls for him instantly but too late to prevent her engagement to a much older man. Harry and Catherine pursue one another in a romance played out in postwar America’s Broadway theaters, Long Island mansions, and the haunts of gangsters.

    What would have made In Sunlight and in Shadow better?

    Read the written word


    What was most disappointing about Mark Helprin’s story?

    Narration combined with incredibly detailed description of every breath and every button. Too much. I had to stop.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Runnette’s performances?

    Probably not


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom
