At a time in her career when she could easily be unknown and penniless - like so many of her classmates from L'Ecole des Beaux Arts - she has gained notoriety in America for her stunning shadow portraits.

But then, on a snowy night in February in a penthouse high above Fifth Avenue, Delphine's mystical talent leads to a tragedy between two brothers.

entrancing book!

the narrator's accent was delightful. Right in keeping with the setting of the story. And the story took a couple of nice little twists. So although one knew pretty much the very bottom line of how it would end, not quite how it would get there.
