Indian Summer

Indian Summer

William Dean HOWELLS




Finished Indian Summer. Not quite sure why it was in my collection of science books, but anyway,

Guy goes to Florence, meets old friend and younger room-mate. Room-mate becomes infatuated. Guy is like, "I'm in my 40's, you're in your 20's, but if you're sure, I guess we can try." Get engaged. Guy gets in accident. Girl figures out she doesn't love him, friend-zones instead. Guy marries old friend. Lots of human Romance stuff.
