Following the global success of Love Story, Erich Segal went on to write seven other romantic best sellers, and a charming and humorous children’s book.
Oliver Barrett IV found his true soulmate when he met and fell in love with Jenny Cavilleri. Their love was magical, exhilarating…though heartbreakingly brief, it was enough to last a lifetime. Or so Oliver told himself.
Oliver’s Story in Erich Segal’s own words
“I think it’s a much sadder book than the first…It’s the story of a boy coming to grips with a love that’s died. How do you go about getting back into life? How do you ask somebody out on a date after eight years?”
