Summary

Fay Langdon and Julia Morton might have met far earlier, since Fay was once a successful singer and Julia a famous diseuse. From the outset, theirs is a precarious friendship, both out of step with their times, allied by the disappointments that age brings.

Is this all there is?

I struggle to think of the heroine's name. 'Jul yah' leaves her very little space.
