    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is a rare treat to be honored with the most glorious description. Mark Helprin has unsurpassed English language skills. Never has place and time, feelings and perception been so exquisitely rendered. A love story of life fully embraced. I can't wait to listen again. Only wish the narrator wasn't such a sad sack.
