The Pages of Adeena
It's the summer of 1952 and Adeena Kahlo (Addie) loves her life in Chicago where she helps to run her close-knit family’s nightclub on the south side of the city. But Addie has a dream that she is determined to make a reality; she will attend college in New York and become a published author. Through a blind date she meets Alan, who becomes her best friend and closest confident; they share a secret that they can never divulge to anyone else.
Together, they discover a door that opens to a magical place that leads to other worlds, and times past and future; Cafe du Temp, a nightclub like no other. At Cafe du Temp they listen to soulful jazz, drink fancy cocktails, champagne, and slowly begin to understand that its elegant opulent and stunning ambience means something unique and special to each person who enters its doors. It’s here, in this strange and elegant place, that Addie meets and falls in love with the beautiful poet, Isabelle Androsko. Their chemistry is immediate and powerful. Despite this, they soon discover that their vastly different worlds pose near impossible obstacles to the life they want to build together. Addie believes that the mysterious Cafe du Temp, and its serendipitous existence in their lives, is the catalyst to their future, and this belief transcends time and heart break to bring her to her ultimate destiny.
