Rising ballet star Dena Lindgren's dream career is knocked off its axis when a puzzling onstage fall results in a crushing diagnosis: a brain tumor. Complications from the extraction surgery kick off a long and difficult recovery, prompting the company's artistic director, Anders Gunst, to shift his attention to an overshadowed company dancer -- Dena's older sister, Rebecca, with whom Anders once shared a special relationship.
Under the heady glow of Anders' attention, Rebecca thrives, even as her sister languishes. While Dena's strength returns, residual facial paralysis sidelines her indefinitely, amid a world that demands beauty and perfection. Rebecca soon faces a painful choice: play by the artistic director's rules and profit, or take shocking action to help her sister.

A Concicise Literary English Translation
My main compulsion for producing this work was the conviction that I could bring a somewhat greater clarity and fluidity to the prose of translators that had gone before, especially for readers whose mother tongue is English. A text containing countless explanatory notes within brackets is a mark of a bad translation. Furthermore, for the purpose of conveying something of the gravitas of the original Arabic text, it is not a simple matter of translating the Qur'an into basic English. However, the primary reason I decided to maintain the archaic English grammar of earlier translations is because it differentiates between the singular and plural you, which is imperative for ascertaining when God addresses His messenger, Mohammed.
The Qur'an is not like the Gospels, which read as accounts of the life and sayings of Jesus compiled by various third parties. The Qur'an should be read as a direct, channelled dialogue from God to His messenger, and ...
