From the Publisher:
Torn apart by grief after losing her sister, the author, a 46-year-old mother of four, turned to literature for comfort, devoting herself to reading one book a day for a year, which brought much needed joy, healing and wisdom into her life. (biography & autobiography).
After losing her sister to cancer, a woman confines herself to a velvet chair and determines to read a book a day. Nina Sankovitch's process of dealing with grief binds the two loves of her life--literature and family--into a dual narrative of the joys of storytelling and how the war-torn Sankovitch brood fled fighting in the Eastern Front of World War II. As the calendar spins by, Nina Sankovitch learns again how to embrace her household life and TOLSTOY AND THE PURPLE CHAIR resuscitates her connection with children, husband, pets, and even laundry.
