Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Two people trapped in the debris of a bombed department store begin a passionate affair that springs from their intimate confinement while they await rescue. Annie is a London homemaker, mildly discontented with her routines as wife and mother; Steve is a bed-hopping advertising executive whose busy life is curiously flat. After their rescue, hospitalization and recuperation, the two fulfill their need for each other, laying siege to the emotional stability of Annie's husband and their two young sons. As Annie struggles against her feelings, she is also devastated by the slow death of her mother and nagging doubts about her life's purpose. Thomas (The White Dove, in what is billed as ``the Brief Encounter for the '80s,'' brings the complexities of adult relationships to an acceptable resolution in a realistic setting of contemporary pain and violence. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates; paperback rights to Pocket Books; major ad/promo. (June 26)
Library Journal
A homemaker is trapped under the wreckage in the basement of a London department store after a bomb explosion. Beside her, a handsome advertising executive, also pinned under the debris, reaches out to her with his handand the rescue of these two survivors, several hours later, is the beginning of their affair and the erosion of Annie's solid but dull marriage. Thomas, author of The White Dove , a popular historical novel of the Spanish Civil War, shows storytelling skill in her re-creation of the harrowing hours of the explosion and its aftermath, and the tense weeks of Annie's subsequent romance. Her narrative style is smooth, and her observations of human behavior original and true. A spellbinding contemporary novel; for most public libraries. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.Joyce Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.
