Katey's story is told over the course of a year, and the themes Towles presents are wound beautifully through the narrative. New York is depicted nicely: not elitist, but as a city where anything could happen. The cast of characters are superb. Multi-dimensional and flawed, they are people you could run into on the street, people you could know. Wonderfully written, this is a novel you can sink into.
5 out of 5 stars
