Description du Livre

In the spring of 1991, a Russian ballerina dreams of leaving Leningrad -- forever. A member of the Kirov Ballet Corps, Tatiana hopes to be chosen for the troupe's Paris tour. Once there, she will try to escape the watchful eye of KGB agents, defect to France, and leave the complicated politics of the Soviet Union behind.

But like ballet, leaving is harder than it looks. Tatiana becomes entangled in her country's struggle for democracy, and her dream of a better life in Paris is soon challenged by hope for her country's future. Tatiana must make a choice, and there will be no turning back.

This companion novel to National Book Award winner Gloria Whelan's breathtaking epics Angel on the Square, The Impossible Journey, and Burying the Sun offers a riveting portrait of a nation, and a young woman, on the brink of spectacular change.
