My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some short stories are meant to connect by a thread or another. With A Glove Shop in Vienna the only thing that links them is the author from her great loves you seen in her other books from ballet, Russia, family, love affairs,governess and hope. All with her added style and humor. Each is it's own little jewel that can stand alone and appreciation for itself.
