A "lively" memoir of a woman finding the cure for a broken heart in the world of ballroom dancing ( Booklist ).

Maria Finn's husband was cheating. First she threw him out. Then she cried. Then she signed up for tango lessons.

It turned out that tango had a lot to teach about understanding love and loss, about learning how to follow and how to lead, how to live with style and flair, take risks, and sort out what it is you really want. As Maria's world begins to revolve around the friendships she makes in dance class and the milongas (social dances) she regularly attends in New York City, we discover with her the fascinating culture, history, music, moves, and beauty of the Argentine tango.

With each new dance step she learns--the embrace, the walk, the sweep, the exit--she is one step closer to returning to the world of the living. Eventually Maria travels to Buenos Aires, the birthplace of tango--and finds the confidence to try romance again.
