Emma Kate Thomas, a seventeen-year-old ballerina of a small midwestern conservatory, leaves her parents and partner behind when a world-famous director entices her to New York. But her imagined waltz to centerstage turns tango as soon as she arrives. Three male mentors vie to become her partner — each exacting his price — and she forges a family of immigrant women to prop her sagging spirit. As stagelight strikes, Emma Kate sees her shadow, recalls the defining moment of her childhood buried under the patchwork of her parents' love, and rediscovers the "dance" she'd learned in the heartland.
