Martas life: Part Two. Marta struggles to regain her ability to dance. As she
finds a job to support herself, her dance and her personal life takes several
unexpected and harrowing turns. Will she be able to find a deeper well of
strength to meet these new challenges head-on?
Eighteen year-old Marta Selbryth remained in Billings, Montana until she
realized she'd need an extended recovery time before she'd be able to return
to dancing. As the story begins, it's May, 1958 and Marta's returned to her
family home in Bremerton, Washington. Her plan: work on her recovery and
make decisions about her future as a dancer as well as her relationship with
her boyfriend, Steve Mason.
It's true, it is hard to go home after being on your own, but Marta's mother
welcomes her and lets her discover her own way forward. However, Marta
feels displaced by her mom's special friend, Robert. Being alone and lonely,
she wanders aimlessly through her days and nights. When she takes a job with
the local community theatre, her energy returns. Her enthusiasm further
reignites when her former ballet teacher, Miss Holland, invites Marta to teach
at her dance studio.
Over the fall, winter and into spring, a series of unexpected events at the
dance studio and in Marta's romantic relationships throw her life in chaos. She
must rethink what and who she wants and needs in her life as well as how
much she's willing to forfeit to achieve her goals.
