Millions of books discuss marriage. Martial relationships exist within the grand epic of God. This great story features a Hero who rescues the world from death, redeeming the entire cosmos. On a smaller scale, marriages act out this same plot. Spouses engage in a mission to bring each other to full life, protecting them from attack and destruction. It instead looks to the grander story of God for the real source of conflict, seeing a dark evil at play. The enemy is not your spouse.
While enjoying Valentine's Day dinner this year, my husband and I talked about the joys of being married. When he asked me what has been the most pleasant surprise of the past three years, I thought for a moment, slowly smiled, and said, "Marriage has been a lot easier than I thought it would be. Perhaps my younger generation is just much more open about taboos and perils, but the horror stories and warnings I received as I approached my wedding led me to believe I could sooner navigate my way through J. Tolkien's Mordor than through a successful marriage. We received pre-marital counseling, prayed often, and dove in anyway. I can honestly say that—praise God! Marrying Nate didn't reveal annoying habits, we didn't start casually dropping "please" or "I love you" from our vocabulary, and I still can't wait to see only him every day.
The 1 international bestseller about the enduring bond between three women and the castle they will never forget.

It's not a particularly original observation, but Esmond is not a particularly original thinker at the beginning of the book, despite his literary aspirations. Esmond is sent to Italy at 20 by his father, the chairman of the British Union of Fascists, to set up a radio station intended to repair Anglo-Italian relations by broadcasting fascist propaganda alongside culturally improving discussions to the English community. For Esmond, this amounts to a banishment, to avoid the scandal of an affair with another boy which saw him sent down from Cambridge. But Esmond, who has obediently absorbed his father's politics, if not his morals, is not paying much attention to Mussolini, Mosley or Hitler. He mixes with writers, including Norman Douglas, and quickly falls into another bold passion with a young Englishman and an Italian girl who share his building. This awakening of youthful sensuality under hot Italian skies carries echoes of Forster as well as Douglas's own South Wind ; art, literature and music are a constant presence throughout the book.
