The raw account of a life-altering affair in wartime London--"Han Suyin's outstanding achievement . . . her finest novel." (Alison Hennegan) As a college student in London during the bitterly cold winter of 1944, Red falls in love with her married classmate Mara. Their affair unleashes a physical passion, a jealousy, and a sense of self-doubt that sweep all her previous experiences aside and will leave her changed forever. Set against the rubble of the bombed city, in a time of gray austerity and deprivation, Winter Love recalls a life at its most vivid. "Probably the best thing she has ever written" (Daily Telegraph), it is also Han Suyin's most unexpected, tender, and stirring work.
