Reading Louisa Meets Bear is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle, as we uncover the subtle and startling connections between the star-crossed lovers and the people in their lives: a daughter who stabs her mother when she learns the truth about her father; a wife who sees herself clearly after finding a man dead on her office floor; a mother who discovers a girl in her teenage son's bed. Alive with deeply human, flawed characters and piercing insight, Louisa Meets Bear grapples with whether we can or can't choose how and whom we love.
When Louisa and Bear meet at Princeton in 1975, sparks fly. Louisa is the sexually adventurous daughter of a geneticist, Bear the volatile son of a plumber. They dive headfirst into a passionate but explosive affair that will alter the course of their lives, changing how they define themselves in the years and relationships that follow.
