Title Profile & Character Information

In Sunlight and in Shadow

Annotation
Home from the war and basking in the bright lights of 1947 New York, wealthy Harry Copeland encounters heiress and aspiring actress Catherine Thomas Hale on the Staten Island ferry, and a great passion is born. Alas, Catherine is engaged to a much older man, but she and Harry pursue a romance against the backdrop of Broadway theaters and Long Island mansions. What Ive read so far is glorious and golden; the 100,000-copy first printing seems right.
