This is a wonderful book by a very talented author that I am happy to recommend.
This was a very original story by Ann Patchett. The writing is flawless and full of ironic thinking for the characters. The language and descriptions throughout the story kept me fascinated. Pachett manages two sub-plots weaving within the story. Placing a few random events seem magical but helped enhance the story. The characters were creative and well developed.
The story begins with the death of the magician and leaves Sabine a widow. Sabine’s enclosed with grief that she spends most of her time in bed until she got a call from the magician’s lawyer with some surprising strange news. Sometime later in the story the readers find out who Sabine’s husband Parsifal really was. They were only married for a year and she was Parsifal’s assistant. She still married him even as she new he had another love. Even though she knew he was gay and would never love her, she still devoted her life and love to him anyway.
During Sabine’s grief for Parsifal she was confused when she heard her husband had kept the truth from her about where he came from and his true identity.
