The second part of the book describes five years of the poet's life at the turn of two centuries, during which she underwent many trials. Lesya Ukrainka fights the disease, continues to write and translate, experiences the loss of her beloved Serhiy Merzhynskyi and receives support from family and friends, including Olga Kobylyanska and Klyment Kvitka. The poet communicates with writers, artists and politicians, travels, learns Italian, tries to become financially independent, plays the role of family peacemaker, complains about the exhaustion of shopping abroad and the rudeness of Russian tourists, and even sews her own clothes and checks out books from European libraries. This is a bright portrait of life on the border of two eras, written in the form of a brilliant novel in letters.
