Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Woman Summary


Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Woman - This classic Austrian novella paints a deeply moving portrait of a woman whose quest for passion and purpose comes at a steep price
 
The less I felt in myself, the more strongly I was drawn to those places where the whirligig of life spins most rapidly.

So begins an extraordinary day in the life of Mrs C—recently bereaved and searching for excitement and meaning. Drawn to the bright lights of a casino, and the passion of a desperate stranger, she discovers a purpose once again but at what cost?

In this vivid and moving tale of a compassionate woman, and her defining experience, Zweig explores the power of intense love, overwhelming loneliness and regret that can last for a lifetime.
