Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings In one storyline we are in 1977 in New York in the ballet world as a young girl is yearning to make it and is doing almost anything to get her place in the professional ballet world. The other storyline is present day as a professor who teaches dance history and things of that nature and she gets a letter that takes her back in time and she must go to New York City to confront the past and get some answers. At a certain point these storylines will converge. As usual, I liked one storyline over one - Mira in 1977 as she is a young naive thing entering the ballet world. As a young girl who loved ballet fiercely, but knew from day one it would never be a profession, I could semi understand Mira and her drive for perfection. I loved reading a girl's story as she is learning about herself and trying to decide what she wants her future to look like.

Though this book is set against the backdrop of the intense ballet world, the themes and characters push past a typical artistic "I want to be the best" plot. It's tersely written, which helps build suspense. The characters are rich and well-written. Very easily to relate to them. I am a 27-year-old man who knows nothing about ballet, and I found myself fascinated by their lives. My only fault with the novel is that the plot is somewhat predictable. However, that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.
