In 2005, Nisha travelled to France to be with what she hoped was the love of her life. Instead, she stayed three years, playing her violin and finding a new sense of passion for music and her own independence. A different kind of love story, Coleman allows the reader a rare glimpse into the world of a street violinist in Paris. Her journey features a mosaic of gypsies, homeless people, other buskers and random strangers -- a tale that transforms from initial hardship to ultimate triumph. This is the moving story of a young woman who went to Paris for love and found her life.
