‘We’ve been waiting for an hour.’ That’s what Audrey says. She states it with a little bit of an edge, her words just bordering on cursive. That’s the thing I think first. Not, Audrey Hepburn is at my birthday dinner, but Audrey Hepburn is annoyed.

What if your dream dinner party were to actually happen? For New Yorker Sabrina, fantasy becomes reality when she arrives at her thirtieth-birthday celebration to find not only her best friend but also her long-dead father, her admired philosophy professor, the love of her life – and silver-screen icon Audrey Hepburn. Unbelievable though this may seem, as the wine and conversation start to flow it becomes clear that these individuals have each played a crucial role in the course Sabrina’s life has taken – and that they have come together at this moment in time for a reason…

Follow Sabrina over one evening and ten years as she grapples with the definition of romance, the expectations of love – and how to navigate her way to happiness in this bittersweet romance for our times.

‘wistful, delicious, romantic, magical’ Gabrielle Zevin, New York Times bestselling author
