Jill Johnson | 1 comments I think he's Romanian (or near the Carpathian mountains?). He marries a woman and they live in a huge castle. He hunts. She looks pretty. I think she was in love with his best friend in the military earlier in his life. It was dark in mood. There is a sense of a dark cold castle, with fires. The climax has to do with this letter that you are dying to know what it says. When he finally gets a hold of it, he throws it in the fire. It's less than 15 years old. It was recommended on NPR. What is the name of that book!!!! Hope someone can tell me. I need to read it again

Cassiel I think it's a book, not a letter that is burned. Embers by Sandor Marai and it was written in 1942 and "rediscovered" recently.

Jill, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

Did you check out Embers by Sándor Márai?
