Like Virginia Woolf did in Mrs. Dalloway, Anne Korkeakivi brilliantly weaves the complexities of an age into an act as deceptively simple as hosting a dinner party.

One day in the life
When an author can take a few loose threads of a plot and bring them all together in a very full story, I find myself in book heaven. I honestly wasn't expecting that much when I started this book. What could be riveting about one day in the life of a deputy ambassador's wife in Paris preparing a dinner party that evening? Yet, the story builds and builds until you are hooked and can't stop listening.
For a story of this type, characters matter. Anne Korkeakivi delivered with very believable but interesting people.
If you are a fan of the classic novels "Mrs. Dalloway" or "The Hours", you will find this book very comparable. The main difference, and NO spoilers here, but the ending is fantastic. I loved it and felt great when I finished the book.
