After five extraordinarily moving mysteries, Mary Anne Kelly turns to a touching and charming novel filled with true-to-life characters and deep emotion.
 
At the start, Claire Breslinsky is in Munich working as a model. She rents a room in a large apartment and meets a series of magical people---or so they seem to her. Isolde, her landlady and sister model, introduces her to a number of people, including Germany’s leading movie star, a noted film photographer, a doctor whose popularity with the opposite sex matches his medical skills, and many more. It’s a dream for Claire, who fled her home in Queens because of its constant reminders of her cop brother’s death.
At a wine-soaked dinner party in Isolde’s flat, it is noisily agreed that the odd assortment of friends will drive a string of caravans to India, taking photographs and filming along the way for a documentary that will eventually pay for the trip.  And so the trek begins--during which Claire learns a good bit about India and a great deal more about men, women, and the voyages of the heart.
Mary Anne Kelly has been praised for bringing her characters to life. It’s a skill that she uses to tremendous advantage in this wonderful new adventure.

Chapter One 
Paris had been exciting, but there’d been the nagging threat of dwindling finances. The unhappy face of my booking girl and the disappointed tone of Francoise, the agency owner, told me that perhaps it would be best if I try Milan.
 
I’d gone right away. Milan had plenty of paintings. I wasn’t just another photographer’s model. I was an artist. Or I would be one day.
 
Milan was better. The booking people there were almost gay as they informed me I’d completely run out of lire.
 
“But what shall I do?” I gaped stupidly at the booking girl.
