Debut Spotlight: Comeback Love by Peter Golden

Author's website:

A little about Comeback Love:

Over thirty-five years ago, Gordon Meyers, an aspiring writer with a low number in the draft lottery, packed his belongings and reluctantly drove away, leaving Glenna Rising, the sexy, sharp-witted med student he couldn’t imagine living without.

Now, decades later, Gordon is a former globetrotting consultant with a grown son, an ex-wife, and an overwhelming desire to see Glenna again. Stunned when Gordon walks into her Manhattan office, Glenna agrees to accompany him for a drink. As the two head out into the snow-swept city, they become caught up in the passions that drew them together then tore them apart, and as the evening unfolds, Gordon finally reveals the true reason for his return.

Moving between past and present, Comeback Love is a journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s and is a sensual exploration of youth, regret, desire, and the bonds that mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.




  1. Sounds like an interesting love story. Wonder why he came back...

  2. This does sound like something that I would really like, and I hadn't heard of it before. Thanks for sharing this one today!

  3. Oooh. I do have a thing for former young lovers who get a second chance as an adult. I do wonder at his motivations for leaving and then returning so many years later.
