" Odlučivši da proda na aukciji svoju izvanrednu kolekciju nakita, Nina Revska, nekadašnja velika baletska zvezda Boljšog teatra, veruje da je konačno navukla zavesu na svoju prošlost. Umesto toga, bivša balerina nađe se preplavljena uspomenama na svoju otadžbinu i događaje, veličanstvene i bolne u isto vreme, koji su pre pola veka promenili tok njenog života.
U Rusiji je otkrila čaroliju pozorišta; zaljubila se u pesnika Viktora Jelsina; zajedno sa svojim najdražim prijateljima - Geršom, briljantnim kompozitorom i prelepom Verom, svojom najdražom prijateljicom - postala je žrtva staljinističkog terora. takođe u Rusiji, strašno saznanje podstaklo je smrtonosni čin izdaje - i dosetljivo bekstvo koje je Ninu odvelo na Zapad i na posletku u Boston.
Nina je pola života čuvala svoje tajne. Međutim, dvoje ljudi neće dozvoliti da prošlost počiva u mir: Dru Bruks, radoznala mlada saradnica bostonske aukcijske kuće, i Grigorij Solodin, profesor ruskog koji veruje da jedinsteni komplet nakita možda čuva tajnu njegove vlastite nejasne prošlosti. Zajedno, ovi slučajni partneri počinju da raspliću misteriju koja okružuje ljubavno pismo, poemu i ogrlicu nepoznatog porekla, pokrećući tako niz otkrovljenja čije će im posledice svima promeniti živote." - Preporuka sa korice knjige :)
Opet ja: Zanimljiva knjiga,pročitala sam je u jednom dahu, takoreći. Naravno,ostaje na čitaocu da se pita kakav je život čuvene balerine bio posle emigracije,na Zapadu...Pisac daje neke naznake,ali ne dovoljne da bi se cela priča složila. Čini mi se kao da nema ni dovoljno naznaka njenog razmišljanja o celoj situaciji posle "nestanka" iz Rusije. ali je kroz fizički bol opisan osećaj kada Nina ustvari shvati pravu istinu,ali isto tako se može zamisliti koliko je psihički bol jak. ... U početku me je priča podsetila na onu priču o Anastaziji / Anastasiji,ali nije to to. Pa ...uživajte :). I javite utiske ;)

***"Deciding to sell at auction his extraordinary collection of jewelery, Nina Revska, former ballet star big Bolshoi Theatre, believes that finally drew the curtain on his past. Instead, the former ballerina finds herself overwhelmed by memories of her homeland and events, glorious and painful to same time, that half a century ago changed the course of her life.
In Russia, she discovered the magic of the theater, fell in love with the poet Viktor Jelsina, along with his dearest friends - Gershon, a brilliant composer and a beautiful faith, my dearest friend - she became a victim of the Stalinist terror. also in Russia, horrible realization sparked the deadly act of betrayal - and resourceful escape that led Nina to the West and eventually to Boston.
Nina has a half life guarding their secrets. However, two people will not let the past rest in peace: Drew Brooks, inquisitive young associate of the Boston auction house, and Grigori Solodin, a professor of Russian who believes that jedinsteni set jewelery may keep a secret of his own ambiguous past. Together, these random partners begin to unravel the mystery surrounding a love letter, a poem, and a necklace of unknown origin, thus setting in motion a series of revelation whose consequences will change everyone's lives. "- Recommendation of a book cover :)
Me again: An interesting book, I read it in one breath, so to speak. Of course, it remains up to the reader to wonder what life was famous ballerinas after emigration to the West ... The author gives some clues, but not enough to make the whole story agreed. It seems to me that there is not enough indication of its thinking about the whole situation after the "disappearance" of Russia. but the physical pain described feeling when Nina actually understand the truth, but it can be imagined how much pain mentally strong. ... At first, I was reminded of the story beyond the story of Anastasia / Anastasia, but that's not it. Well ... enjoy :). And let impressions;)
