The Magician's Assistant CD (CD-Audio)
I was totally enchanted by this story: A woman becomes an assistant to
her very talented and handsome Magician Husband who happens to be gay.
The story is unusual but very poignant. After her husband dies, the main
character finds out she has an estranged family which she knew nothing
about. Ann Patchett has a tremendous gift for pulling you into a story
and keeping you there. I highly recommend.
When Parsifal, a handsome and charming magician, dies suddenly, his widow Sabine—who was also his faithful assistant for twenty years—learns that the family he claimed to have lost in a tragic accident is very much alive and well. Sabine is left to unravel his secrets, and the adventure she embarks upon, from sunny Los Angeles to the bitter windswept plains of Nebraska, will work its own magic on her. Sabine's extraordinary tale captures the hearts of its readers just as Sabine is captured by her quest.
