From the best-selling author ofOne Daycomes a bittersweet and brilliantly funny coming-of-age tale about the heart-stopping thrill of first loveand how just one summer can forever change a life.

Now:On the verge of marriage and a fresh start, thirty-eight year old Charlie Lewis finds that hecan't stop thinking about the past, and the events of one particular summer.

Then: Sixteen-year-old Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don't remember in the school photograph. He's failing his classes. At home he looks after his depressed fatherwhen surely it should be the other way roundand if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread.

But when Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope.

In order to spend time with Fran, Charlie must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. He must join the Company. And if the Company sounds like a cult, the truth is even more appalling: The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare,Romeo and Julietlearned and performed in a theater troupe over the course of a summer.

Now: Charlie can't go the altar without coming to terms with his relationship with Fran, his friends, and his former self. Poignant, funny, enchanting, devastating,Sweet Sorrowis a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love that can only be looked at directly after it has burned out.
