The Forgotten Waltz

The Forgotten Waltz

By  Anne Enright

Enright's first novel since her Man Booker Prize-winning book The Gathering. The Forgotten Waltz is a book of secrets and longing, bliss and loss.

It is the winter of 2009 and snow covers Dublin. As the city outside comes to a halt, Gina Moynihan recalls the bewildering speed of attraction and her irreparable slip into longing for Seán Vallely, a married man and 'the love of her life'. Gina remembers the days of their affair in one hotel room or another: long afternoons made blank by bliss and denial. As the memories of her desire unfurl, so too do the complications of Gina's choice and the price she must pay for her love. The Forgotten Waltz is an unforgettable portrait of the journey of the human heart. It speaks of the sudden, momentous drama of everyday life, the volatile connections that bind us and the secrets that tear us apart.
