Baker & Taylor
Fleeing to Europe to escape memories of her brother's tragic death, Claire Breslinsky builds a new life for herself in Munich, where she encounters a variety of exotic characters, including a filmmaker who takes her to India to film a documentary.

McMillan Palgrave
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.
