Where others might let life’s disappointments dull their gusto, Ana plows ahead.- The US review of Books In a small Eastern European country, while longing for democracy to come... Ana is young and green when her husband flees the country, leaving her alone with their two-year-old daughter, Lilly, and the majority of the shares of land that has been seized by the state—including a horse racetrack near the capital. Managing what remains of her affairs leads Ana to the egocentric collector, owner of the only licensed bookmaking company in town. He is also known to be one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the country. A joint horse racing venture is born, with Ana taking the lead. But as the years pass and Lilly grows into a young woman, Ana begins to suspect the collector of darker intentions, and his deviations from their agreement will require her to summon everything she has learned to keep her family afloat. Inspired by real events, Ana's Way is a captivating story about dreaming big, taking risks, and facing the consequences along the road to accepting every step and every misstep as part of who we are today.
