The Red Address Book

Рейтинг: 
Within the pages of 96-year-old Doris's red address book are the names of all those she has loved and lost, telling the story of a colourful life. Living alone in Stockholm, she is comforted by the weekly calls of her grand-niece Jenny, who is haunted by a painful childhood. Finally, Doris decides to put pen to paper, using her address book to recall the memories of a life well-lived - from 1930s Paris runways to narrow New York escapes during World War Two - and what she and Jenny discover may well change their lives forever…
