"Riveting drama and sensuous prose make for an unforgettable love story." -KIRKUS REVIEWS
"If Satan were to write a novel to promote polygamy, this would be a contender." - a very unhappy Troika reader
A young Cuban woman passes her nights dancing in a seedy Florida strip club; a Russian orphan loses everything, then builds a new and prosperous life for himself in New York; a woman struggles to maintain her dignity and hope after a life-changing accident—these are the three members of the troika whose story is told in this acclaimed literary debut.
Their lives unexpectedly intertwined, Perla, Julian and Sophie discover a world—a way of life—that forces them to challenge their definitions of commitment, love and trust, a world that heals old wounds and inspires them to transform tragedy into beauty.
