  • This is the story of a Ballet Festival in Venice, and of all the adventures that befell Vicki Scott when she made friends with a strange girl named Maria on the Venice Lido beach. Maria said she was a dancer with the Royal Slavonian Ballet but was she? It took several adventures, and a midnight swim in a canal, for Vicki to discover who Maria really was.
