Anita Shreve, in an interview about her book The Last Time They Met, says
I spend the majority of my writing life imagining other people's lives. Writing itself is about experiencing the unlived life in many senses.
As a reader, I find Shreve's story ideas very intriguing. Not because of the idea alone but because she sets you thinking in many different directions while she divulges bit by bit of the suspense.
The story is about two people who have a lifelong passion for each other even though they only meet three times in their lives-when they're fifty-two, when they're twenty-six, and when they're seventeen. You might say the book is about moments of no return. It's about missed and retrieved opportunities, about time and memory.
