Legendary storyteller Barbara Taylor Bradford presents a
spellbinding story of four women transformed by old memories and surprising
revelations when they meet again at a school reunion in Paris.
As students at the prestigious Anya Sedgwick School of
Decorative Arts in Paris, Alexandra Gordon, Kay Lenox, Jessica Pierce, and
Maria Franconi share the challenges and excitement of developing their various
artistic talents to the fullest under Sedgwick’s caring and demanding guidance.
Once best friends, they part enemies, and after graduation go their separate
ways, pursuing careers and establishing lives in different corners of the
world. Alexandra, a set designer, becomes a leading figure in New York’s
theater world. Kay, who marries and moves to Scotland, designs a successful
line of clothing. Jessica, an interior designer, makes her home in California,
while Maria returns to her native Italy, where she continues to work in her
family’s textile business.
For each of them, the arrival of an invitation to Paris to
celebrate Anya Sedgwick’s eighty-fifth birthday stirs up complicated feelings:
Nostalgic memories are colored by poignant regrets, and the reluctance to
revisit their own pasts mixes with curiosity about their former friends. It is
ultimately their desire to deal with unfinished business that convinces all of
them to attend the party. During three eventful weeks in Paris, they visit
their old haunts, rekindle ties, and awaken in one another the sense of wonder,
adventure, and possibilities they had shared so long ago.
