Amerika, Anfang der achtziger Jahre, ein College an der Ostküste. Madeleine Hanna, begeisterte Leserin von Roland Barthes, schreibt eine literaturwissenschaftliche Arbeit über die «Liebeshandlung» viktorianischer Romane. Während sie über den uralten Beweggründen des menschlichen Herzens brütet, bricht das wirkliche Leben in Gestalt zweier junger Männer über sie herein. Leonard Bankhead, charismatischer Einzelgänger mit scheinbar unerschöpflichem Elan, taucht Tabak kauend in einem Semiotik-Seminar auf, und schon bald verstrickt sich Madeleine in eine erotisch und intellektuell aufgeladene Beziehung. Zur selben Zeit lässt sich ihr alter Freund Mitchell Grammaticus wieder blicken, besessen von dem Gedanken, Madeleine sei für ihn bestimmt und er für sie. Wenig später, den Collegeabschluss in der Tasche, werden alle drei gezwungen, vieles in neuem Licht zu sehen. Leonard und Madeleine ziehen in die malerische Dünenlandschaft von Cape Cod; Mitchell, in Gedanken oft bei Madeleine, reist mit einem Rucksack voller Bücher über christliche Mystik bis nach Indien, stellt sich den Fragen nach dem Sinn des Lebens, der Existenz Gottes und dem, was Liebe ist. Gibt es die großen Liebesgeschichten des 19. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr, heute, in Zeiten von sexueller Freiheit, Eheverträgen, Scheidungen? Indem Jeffrey Eugenides eine totgeglaubte Tradition erneuert, meldet er sich als einer der bedeutendsten Autoren der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur zurück.

A Country Christmas might be the best Christmas of all… Buffalo Valley The town of Buffalo Valley, North Dakota—a community in farm country—is undergoing a revival. Vaughn Kyle, who's just out of the army, is looking for a place to live, a life to live. While he's waiting for his ambitious fiancée to make up her mind, he visits Buffalo Valley one snowy day and meets a young woman named Carrie Hendrickson. As they grow close, Vaughn has to question his feelings for the woman he thought he loved. He knows then that he wants to stay in Buffalo Valley, where life is about family and friends—not money and social standing. And not just at Christmas, but every day of the year… Return to Promise Rancher Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane—known as Dr. Texas—have recently separated, with Jane going back to her childhood home in California with their children. Now Cal, alone on his ranch, is forced to confront what he really wants in his life, what he needs. Jane is confronting the same questions. How seriously does Cal take his marriage vows? And how important is Promise to Jane? Is there hope for a reconciliation—in time for Christmas?
