Journal Entry 1 by buttonbright from Raleigh, North Carolina USA on Sunday, December 3, 2023
In 1916, a young boy, Nathan Longfort, is on the funeral train bearing the body of his grandfather, the Senator, from Washington, D.C., to Knoxville, Tennessee. The memory of this journey will haunt him for the rest of his life. On this trip, he meets the enigmatic Cousin Aubrey, a man of "irregular kinship," the black sheep of the Longfort clan. As the years pass, and Aubrey disappears into the world, Nathan begins to compulsively collect rumors about his faraway life―as Nathan's mother's first true love, a charmer of European society, a Don Juan, a worldly success―and sees it in stinging contrast to his own unfulfilled dreams of becoming an artist. Much later in life, the two men―now old―will meet again.

I found this book on the discount shelves of a local used bookstore.

I am buying books from the outside shelves at The Readers Corner (a Raleigh used book store) and releasing them. This is one of those books. If you like it, take it and write a journal entry at - its easy and anonymous. Then when you are done with it, find a nice person or place to release it. I look forward to reading your thoughts on this book and finding out where you got it from. This book is on an adventure we can share with it.
