From the Publisher
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 artistic talents to the fullest under Sedgwick's caring and demanding guidance. But once best friends, they part enemies, and after graduation they 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 the other women. 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.

From The Critics
Book Magazine
If you're looking for a little escapism filled with pretty places and prettier people, you'll enjoy Bradford's latest offering. Four women, all in their late twenties, are to be reunited at an arts school in Paris for a celebration in honor of their former headmistress. There is great enmity among the women, who have not spoken in years. Love affairs, a mysterious disappearance and the unearthing of buried secrets all play a role.

Bradford is in her usual good form here. Mystery, romance, secrets and conflict in one story told as only Bradford can. I recommend it to anyone who likes any of those elements in their reading.

I hated this book. It dragged on and on getting to know the characters and not getting to the point of the event to come where they all meet.
