Publisher's Summary

Once a spirited, independent woman with a rebellious streak, Masha's life was forever changed by a tragic event 12 years ago. Unable to let go of her grief, she finds comfort in her faithful canine companion Haizum and peace in the quiet lanes of her town's swimming pool. Almost without her realizing it, her life has shuddered to a halt. 

It’s only when Masha begins an unlikely friendship with the mysterious Sally Red Shoes, a bag lady with a prodigious voice and a penchant for saying just what she means, that a new world of possibilities opens up: new friendships, new opportunities, and even a chance for new love. For the first time in years, Masha has the chance to start living again. But just as Masha dares to imagine the future, her past comes roaring back....

Interesting Characters, Excellent Performance

This was a study of character development and the performance only enhanced that. There was all kinds of interesting facts about Victorian death rites, cemeteries, poetry, opera...but it did not seem morbid or even dark. The pacing was excellent and stories developed intrinsically. The only problem - for me - was the fact that she took the obvious plot path. I kept hoping that it was going to twist away but I was disappointed. It was handled well..and expediently...but yet, there it was.
