    This novel is an outstanding tale of contemporary problems regarding long distance relationships and making lifetime decisions. The hero is confronted with waiting for a career-minded love to accommodate marriage while he is expected - and inclined - to accept intermittent togetherness. The story resonates for today's careerists who are confronted with similar situations and required to make choices early before they have time to fully develop their relationships or know where their career paths will lead them. At one point in the story, I woke up in the middle of the night wanting to help the hero with his decisions.Sage writes with remarkable clarity and consistency, which keeps the reader fully apprised as the story unfolds. The romantic scenes are emotional and sensitive while maintaining a measure of propriety.The dialogue gives the reader a particular sense of inclusion. The title, an extract from a poem from Alexander Pope, is the latter half of "You purchase pain with all... More > that Joy can give," and relates perfectly the anguish of making life's decisions. While reading this book it was difficult waiting a day between chapters.< Less
