A moving story of longing and loss…
Ivanka, a Russian art patron, has almost given up on life after a difficult clinical diagnosis when a wrongly delivered letter put her in touch with Maria, a reclusive gifted musician. Ivanka finds a purpose in life as she takes on the difficult task of getting Maria back into music with the help of her best friend Igor and therapist Fer. Reiza’s characterization is complex as her protagonists confront their inner turmoil and come to term with the circumstances of their lives. Reiza expertly tackles a moving subject with precision and clarity, and comes up with a satisfying, heartfelt finale. Seductively readable, the book will appeal to serious readers of literary fiction. A powerful, moving portrayal of a woman who is trying to make most out of her bleak situation.
