"We can't all be happy, we can't all be rich, we can't all be lucky - and it would be so much less fun if we were... There must be the dark background to show up the bright colours. "

A spectacular book about a woman who returns to Paris in hope of reliving her youth and finding that the world has moved on...

Beautiful and heartbreaking and tragic with gorgeous prose to match, this book is very high on my 'Jo... get your act together and re-read this!' list.
