The following is a short excerpt and peek inside Swan, The Life and Times of Anna Pavlova
The world is big
Anna is small.
The snow is
and all around
But one night…
One night her mother takes her to the ballet, and everything is changed – Anna finds beauty inside herself that she cannot contain.
So begins the journey of a girl who will one day grow up to be the most famous prima ballerina of all time, and who will inspire legions of dancers after her: The brave, the generous, the transcendently gifted Anna Pavlova.
