IF I FORGET YOU unfurls the story of two formers lovers who—twenty-one years after they were driven apart by circumstances beyond their control—have a chance encounter on a Manhattan street. Through altering points of view, Greene introduces Henry Gold, a poet whose rise from poverty embodies the American dream, and Margot Fuller, the daughter of a prominent, wealthy family. The reader bears witness to their unlikely, star-crossed love affair, complete with the secrets they carry when they find each other for the second time. In Greene’s capable hands, Henry and Margot’s story become a tense, tender, suspenseful exploration of the many facets of enduring love.
IF I FORGET YOU is at once a great love story, a meditation on the nature of art, a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose, and an exploration how the choices we make can change our lives forever.
