Publishers Description: Millions fell in love with Maos Last Dancer. Finally here is Marys story... The highly anticipated memoir of Australian ballerina Mary Li and the long-awaited sequel to her husband Li Cunxins bestselling memoir, Maos Last Dancer. Marys Last Dance is a powerful and uplifting memoir about chasing an impossible dream, and sacrificing ones own ambition for the love of a child. It is a moving and unforgettable story of passion, dedication and devotion and the highly anticipated sequel to one of the worlds most beloved books. Mary Li (nee McKendry) is an international ballet star and a mother like no other. She became a household name when her husband Li Cunxin published his bestselling memoir, Maos Last Dancer but that book told only half the story. Growing up in a rambunctious family in Rockhampton, Mary discovered an extraordinary early passion for ballet. It saw her move to London at age sixteen, to study at the Royal Ballet School and dance at the London Festival Ballet with the likes of Nureyev, and later to Houston Ballet, where as Principal Dancer she fell in love with the acclaimed dancer Li Cunxin. The couple became the darlings of the dance world, and were happier than they could have imagined at the arrival of their firstborn daughter, Sophie. Then right at the height of her international career, Mary seemingly disappeared from view. What could have happened to cause a woman so committed, so talented, to give it all away in a heartbeat Now, almost twenty years on, we learn what happened next to this inspiring family, and why it is Marys turn to tell a truly remarkable tale.
