Summary
Judith Whitman left for college at Stanford and quickly shed her small-town ways, but she left Willy Blunt behind, a young man who loved her with all his heart. As her life spun further away from Nebraska and Willy, Judith married Malcolm Toomey and they had a daughter. She pursued a successful career in film editing in LA. Almost 30 years later, she misses Willy with a sharpness that takes her breath away. In her longing and sadness, she searches for Willy with shattering results.
Critique
Do we ever forget our first love? Tom McNeal writes a beautiful, intense novel of first love and its loss. Heartbreaking and memorable. McNeal is immensely talented. Highly recommended.
