As its title suggests, this is an elegant yet truly powerful book. Told from the perspectives of two highly intellectual women, the novel often delves into musings of philosophy and art. But the strength of this book comes from the relationships between the characters when their paths cross, and the tender and beautifully understated romance that unfolds for one of the protagonists. While the narrative might be a slow burn, the payoff is not wasted. It’s a tragic, inspiring, and downright wonderful story for the romantic readers and philosophers alike.
