Annasheeva. The theme for this novel has been on my mind for more than twenty years. It is the story of a famous New York City ballerina who finds herself a widow at forty-six. After her husband's death, she moves to the southern shores of Massachusetts where she buys a small cottage and inherits the home's cat. Three years later, she is walking on the beach, soothing aching feet and ankles in the surf, when she meets a young man seventeen years her junior. She resists, he persists. This is a story of intensely complicated love and betrayal.
