Love, war, and commerce converge in this lush, epic story of a woman who follows her love to Paris, only to find herself marooned, pregnant, and penniless. Set around France's Second Empire, where absinthe, prostitution, vast wealth, and cataclysmic social upheaval abound, this novel delicately explores the contrary requirements of a woman's survival--and her determination to recover the daughter she gave away.

Richly evocative of times but the fairly interesting, if not particularly original, plot gets bogged down in solipsistic meanderings that sound straight out of an undergrad seminar.
