My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The writer always has very different perspectives on situations. In this case, Livia, Is giving a big party for her fortieth birthday. It is something that she has been planning for many years and is looking forward to it so much. Her and her husband didn't have a wedding, only the registration office, and this party that was years in the planning was going to be the best ever.
Their young daughter, Marnie, is in school in Hong Kong and Livia knew that she wouldn't be able to attend. But her husband planned a surprise and had booked a fast trip for her to come quickly to attend the party and to surprise her mom.
Something very terrible happened to Marnie enroute to the party and the question for Livie's husband is should he tell her now and ruin her party, or let the party go on and tell her after.
And excellent read.
