Touching, funny, and stylistically breathtaking, Providence is a brightly polished gem of romantic comedy.

From the Back Cover:

"Providence recounts, with elegance and precision, the story of a woman's efforts to create a new life for herself ... Brookner has proved herself a master."-- The New York Times

"Ambitious and disturbing ... uncommonly deft, witty and serious." -- The New York Times Book Review

"Anita Brookner's themes -- experience, nationality, faith, innocence and betrayal -- evoke the pleasures of reading Henry James. [Providence is] an intelligent and moving novel." -- Francine Prose

"[A] perfectly observed and quietly witty novel."-- Washington Post
