Publisher's Summary

A "brilliant, astonishing modern love story"* and an acclaimed literary debut...

A young Cuban woman passes her nights dancing in a seedy Florida strip club; a Russian orphan loses everything, then builds a new and prosperous life for himself in New York; a woman struggles to maintain her dignity and hope after a life-changing accident—these are the three members of the troika whose story is told in this dazzling literary debut.

Their lives unexpectedly intertwined, Perla, Julian and Sophie discover a world—a way of life—that forces them to challenge their definitions of commitment, love and trust, a world that heals old wounds and inspires them to transform tragedy into beauty.

What the Critics Say

“What a great gallop through the landscape of the human heart, what a brilliant, astonishing modern love story, what a beautiful pair of heroines, what an amazing journey from the plantains of Little Havana and a Fort Lauderdale strip club to Fifth Avenue and East Hampton, what a ride to a complex and satisfying redemption, what a glorious testimony to the way damage can become a lovely destiny, what a book!” (Susan Cheever)

    "Very enjoyable! Captivating!"

    Particularly like the narration by Rebecca Soler... She made the characters come alive! I'm looking forward to future novels by this author and narrator.

    "Interesting and lovable characters!"

    Loved this book!
    The author shows great depth and sensitivity as he creates his troika.
    No details spared in sharing the torment of spinal cord injury.
    Funny, tragic, creative, disturbing and comforting.
