Taking place in the mid to late 1920's, Tender is the Night brings the splendor, passion, and culture boom of the period to life. It is an account of a love affair between a young actress, Rosemary Hoyt, and an established doctor, Dick Driver. Showing the views of both, it illustrates the freedom one feels in love and the emotional suffocation that indifference brings in relationships. Not only is it a love story, but a cautionary tale of what happens when in love, one forgets who they are for the sake of the other person.
Those who enjoy romance, foreign backdrop, and emotional honesty, give it a read!
