Thomas Nesbitt is a divorced American writer in the midst of a rueful middle age. Living a very private life in Maine - in touch only with his daughter and still trying to reconcile himself to the end of a long marriage that he knew was flawed from the outset - his solitude is disrupted by the arrival, one wintry morning, of a box postmarked Berlin. The name accompanying t Thomas Nesbitt is a divorced American writer in the midst of a rueful middle age. Living a very private life in Maine - in touch only with his daughter and still trying to reconcile himself to the end of a long marriage that he knew was flawed from the outset - his solitude is disrupted by the arrival, one wintry morning, of a box postmarked Berlin. The name accompanying the return address on the box - Dussmann - disquiets him completely. For it is the name of the woman with whom he had an intense love affair twenty-five years ago in Berlin - at a time when the city was cleaved in two, and personal and political allegiances were frequently haunted by the deep shadows of the Cold War. Refusing initially to confront what he might find in the box, Thomas nevertheless finds himself forced to grapple with a past he has always kept hidden - and in the process relive those months in Berlin, when he discovered, for the first and only time in his life, the extraordinary force of real love. But Petra Dussmann - the woman to whom he lost his heart - was not just a refugee from a police state, but also someone who lived with an ongoing sorrow beyond dreams ... a sorrow which gradually rewrote both their destinies. In this, his tenth novel, Douglas Kennedy has written a hugely compelling love story at once morally complex, tragic and deeply reflective. Brilliantly gripping, The Moment is a profoundly affecting tale of romantic certainty and conflicting loyalties, all set amidst a stunningly atmospheric portrait of Berlin in the final dark years before the Wall came down.
