Portrait of Jennie
A struggling and uninspired artist falls in love with a captivating young woman who inspires him, and during their brief time together he comes to realize she is a ghost from another time.
The David O. Selznick film “Portrait of Jennie” was made in 1948 and garnered two Oscar nominations.
This novel is available to read as an ebook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iTunes.
“So brilliant is Nathan’s execution that one is entirely lost in the tender love story of two immortally designed for each other, one a spirit out of the past seeking to catch up with the present, the other a man rooted in the present and caught in an urgency to accept the gift of the past… ‘Portrait of Jennie’ will perhaps most vividly recall Balderston’s “Berkeley Square,” for, like that, it is a love story that transcends the boundaries of time. It is told with tenderness and with beauty. Its mood lingers in the heart and its planes challenge the mind.”
