Bliss, Remembered by Frank Deford: Sydney Branch, 86, is succumbing to cancer. She invites her son, Teddy, to visit her to watch the Olympic swimming events with her at her home in Eugene
From a small town on the Eastern Shore of Chesapeake Bay to Nazi Germany, Bliss, Remembered spans more than half a century. A love story of the first caliber. My hat is off to Deford for this work. I will mark this as one of the finest novels I will read in 2011.
