This a beautiful book, there is a lot detailed description of Prague, bringing the history and magic of the city to life. The characters are all very different, but well developed with a good back story to how they ended up in Prague. The thing they all have in common is that they are at a crossroads in their lives where they need to consider not only their future but also the past and decide what they want from life.
