Riassunto: Thursday's Child is one of the richest, most powerful, and most profound romances ever written. Set in present day Manhattan, amid the dynamic worlds of high finance, publishing houses, and major law firms, it combines a love story that is at once both heroic and intimate, with an insistence on the sacramental power of art and a faith in the ultimate triumph of the spirit, into a modern epic of true grandeur. The Thursday's Child who lies at its heart, Adele Jansen, has (in the words of the old rhyme about birthdays) far to go. Gifted, ambitious, and determined, she takes one step off the career track to take an impromptu excursion with a man as fascinating as he is mysterious. Quite against her will, without completely understanding how or why, she finds herself drawn into an odyssey that will take her to the widest expanses of human existence, its heights and depths, its darkest mysteries, its brightest splendors--and transform both her and everyone around her. Her spellbinding story is told in terms that are vividly contemporary and strikingly realistic--yet at the same time, resonate with some of the oldest myths and legends of humankind. A magical story, Thursday's Child is a unique book--one that no reader will ever
