A Winter's Tale - Book to Movie

Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin: Apparently io9 loves this book, and I’m a big fan of io9. With the movie coming in February of 2014, I’ll probably be reading it shortly.

A bestseller that takes readers on a journey to New York of the Belle Epoque, where Peter Lake attempts to rob a Manhattan mansion only to find the daughter of the house at home. Thus begins the love between the middle-aged Irishman and Beverly Penn, a young girl who is dying. "This novel...is a gifted writer's love affair with the language" (Newsday).
