Summary
The dramatic, untold story of Lina and Serge Prokofiev, a doomed love story and a shattering portrait of an artist.

The answers can finally be revealed, thanks to Morrison's unique and unfettered access to the family's voluminous papers and his ability to reconstruct the tragic, riveting life of the composer's wife, Lina
