Description

With Bliss, Remembered , the celebrated Frank Deford has produced a work of literature that ranks with the best of his many novels, including Everybody's All American , which Sports Illustrated ranked as one of the twenty-five best sports books of all time. In Bliss, Remembered , Deford explores new territory as he tells two love stories from the perspective of a beautiful should-have-been Olympic champion named Sydney Stringfellow.

At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Sydney begins an intense love affair with a German, but the affair abruptly ends when political forces tear them apart. Back in the United States, Sydney-daring, vulnerable, and memorable-is left healing her broken heart when a striking American begins to pursue her. In Deford's tender novel, the simplicity and honesty of choices of the heart clash with a brutal time-a time when choices seemed so dire in the enveloping shadows of a changing world.

When the rising tide of global conflict tears them apart, Sydney returns to America, where she finds love again-in the arms of Jimmy Branch, an American man who takes her hand in marriage before shipping off to fight in World War II. And that is when Horst reappears in Sydney's life, drawing her into a dilemma of passion, betrayal, and espionage.
