Finished reading "Across the River and into the Trees" by Ernest Hemingway.

The story is set in post-war Venice. A 51-year-old American military officer and a 19-year-old aristocratic Venetian girl truly love each other. At her prompting, he recalls his exploits during World War 2. He goes duck hunting one Sunday, shoots four or five fat ducks, and dies of a heart attack in the evening. A touching novel.
