Thaddeus Kaufman, the son of booksellers, and Grace Cornell, raised in a basement apartment she longs to escape, meet at a neighborhood art fair in Chicago. Soon after, they head to New York, aloft on the wings of young love.  Jennings Stratton, the son of a caretaker, and Muriel Sanchez, the daughter of a cop, meet in a house he is refurbishing in New Mexico, and they, too, head for the big city. In a vast Hudson River estate, the lives of the two couples ultimately intertwine. 

by Scott Spencer - Fiction, Romance

One of the most celebrated novels of its time, ENDLESS LOVE remains perhaps the most powerful book ever written about young love. Riveting, compulsively readable and ferociously sexual, ENDLESS LOVE tells the story of David Axelrod and his overwhelming love for Jade Butterfield.
