The third novel in the Petrovo series
Brimming with pathos, poignancy, & humor

In the mid-1800s, 15-year-old unwed, pregnant Anna was banished from her tiny village of Petrovo. The homeless, illiterate girl discovers that Moscow’s frozen streets are filled with women as destitute as herself. Lacking other options, she follows in their footsteps and accepts a yellow ticket, identifying her a prostitute. She takes up residence at a brothel – a veneer of magenta silk, flaking gold leaf, and faux diamonds that disguises the age-old perils of disease, pregnancy, and violence.
