A Favorite Non-Romance Romance

 I expect a good romance when I’m reading in the romance genre, but I’ve learned not to expect the same from other genres.  I’ve also learned rather painfully that there is no guarantee of a happy ending in other genres.  Not that I’m still bitter about how things turned out in His Dark Materials or anything.  However, sometimes in my non-romance reading I come across a love story so well done that it stays with me.
