Mark Helprin (au). A novel about the beauty & complexity of the human soul, about God, love, & justice. You will be transported to NY of the Belle Époque, to a city clarified by a siege of unprecedented winters. One night, Peter Lake - -orphan, master-mechanic, & master second-storey man -- attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the affair between the middle-aged Irish burglar & Beverly Penn, a young girl who is dying. Because of a love that at first he cannot fully understand, Peter, a simple & uneducated man, will be driven “to stop time & bring back the dead.” His great struggle, in a city with its own energy & beset by winter, is a beautiful & extraordinary story.
