The Dawn Of Midnightby Trevor Scott
In the dead of winter, a young man and woman struggle to understand their relationship in Munich's expatriate community. Both Karl Schwarz, the former American Olympic skier, and Angelique Flaubert, the auburn-haired Belgian beauty, must overcome outside influences that conspire to keep them apart. They are united by proximity as tour guides for a German company traveling in Europe, while they feed their true passion-he as a floundering writer and she as an aspiring painter. When Karl is forced to fly home to Minnesota to attend his favorite uncle's funeral, he sets into motion a cataclysmic sequence of events that compels him to question everything in his life. As Karl leaves Angelique, she returns to Brussels to confront a family that has arranged her marriage to a man she despises. Find out if they both return to Germany to find true love. . .

I've read almost all Trevor Scott's books which I thoroughly enjoyed this book I just can't get in to, so disappointed
I wasn't going to buy this book, since it was a departure from the author's other books. His others are mostly espionage thrillers. Yet, he weaves a beautiful tale, much like a Vivaldi concerto. Highly recommended! Great for high school students to octogenarians.
I have read all of Trevor Scott's thrillers, and this is an interesting departure from those books. At times funny, at times sad, this is a book that is timeless. I will be reading this book next year and ten years from now.
