Books Info:

A Premature Affair free pdf In A Premature Affair, Richard Joyce's new novel, readers are transported to North Texas in the 1960s for a story about the precarious and fragile nature of young love and early friendships. "A Premature Affair" depicts an abortive love affair between Adam, a young English writer/teacher, and his determined English girl-friend. The affair ultimately shatters, as the lovers are driven apart by their own selfish aims and flaws of character, as well as by the stifling pressures of parental consent and convention. In parallel, readers will watch the decline and ultimate destruction of one of Adam's friends and colleagues, Bill, destroyed by flaws in his own character and hidden external forces aligned against him. Joyce deals with timeless themes in A Premature Affair. "Young people still face the same inherent hazards in their lives and in the affairs of the heart as do the characters in this book," he says. "Although the external formats may be different today, the internal issues confronting people remain eternally the same." "The language is quite beautiful - fluid and poetic." Capel and Land, Literary Agents "The writing is strong and the plot intriguing." Futerman, Rose
