Don, an eighty-year-old jazz pianist, and Sarah, a sixty-nine-year old clinical psychologist, spent twenty-two relatively content years together as monogamous lovers, despite their wildly different interests and personalities. One summer at her youngest son's wedding, a handsome, seventy-year-old former Jesuit priest asked Sarah to dance. She soon fell head over heels into an intoxicating, passionate relationship with him that belied their years. After a beguiling and giddy courtship, that romance abruptly blew up in her face.
Told from the alternating points of view of Don and Sarah, Entangled is an honest and moving memoir in two voices about the devastating consequences of a love affair gone wrong. When Sarah returns to Don, he discovers that she has kept a journal of her affair and agrees to join her in reconstructing, through writing, what has happened to them.
Entangled is the culmination of this courageous undertaking in the face of pain and betrayal. Their willingness to confront difficult truths has led to a relationship that, while changed and injured by circumstance, was still a rich and vibrant source of friendship and acceptance.
