“A well written and engaging story
told by a master story teller filled with
sensitivity, mystery and necessary secrets.”
From a Midwest University campus to a Belle Époque mansion in Paris, four lives are connected in a way one could never imagine. Adrianna comes from a small town and was taught by her mother to always keep herself looking pretty. Yet she is reluctantly and inexplicably drawn to Teo who is disfigured, quite talented and secretive—all of which disturbs her.
In Paris, Samuel, a lonely businessman from NYC meets Didier, a friendly stranger at a café along the Canal Saint-Martin. Didier laments that a mysterious woman made him drink some absinthe and then cursed him with a compulsion to search for something, but she never said what it was.
A Sip of Absinthe is the compelling and beguiling story of their personal journeys which keeps us in suspense until Adrianna stumbles upon the connection—if only she could believe it to be true.
