In June of 1989, Paul McLeod, the recently widowed patriarch, becomes infatuated with a young American artist while traveling through Greece and is compelled to relive the secret sorrows of his marriage. Six years later, Paul's death reunites his sons at Tealing, their idyllic childhood home, where Fenno, the eldest, faces a choice that puts him at the center of his family's future. A lovable, slightly repressed gay man, Fenno leads the life of an aloof expatriate in the West Village, running a shop filled with books and birdwatching gear. He believes himself safe from all emotional entanglements - until a worldly neighbor presents him with an extraordinary gift and a seductive photographer makes him an unwitting subject. Each man draws Fenno into territories of the heart he has never braved before, leading him toward an almost unbearable loss that will reveal to him the nature of love.

So well written. Set in Scotland and Manhattan. Spans decades. The saga of a Scottish family. Much is told by one of the sons, who is gay. Deals with AIDS in the early days. Award winner.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The book has three sections. An young American woman meets a middle aged Scottish man who is recently widowed. She flings herself into a holiday affair with a Greek man. The older man watches with sympathy. Then years later, she meets the man's son in New York. A case of ships passing in the night.
