Book Summary

When Jane Levitsky, an expert in the field of nineteenth-century Russian literature, stumbles upon evidence that Masha Karkova, the wife of novelist Grigory Karkov, may have been more than a muse to her famed husband, she has no idea that her discovery will set in motion a chain of events that could unravel her own marriage and career.
