The Dance Of Love by Angela Young

The Dance Of Love

‘The Dance of Love’ is an exquisitely told tale of love, duty, honour and desire.

The story of Natalie Edwardes, who has to find her way in a world with expectations that she can’t always meet, is told with warmth and understanding. The historical setting, which takes us from a carefree Edwardian world through the drama of the sinking of the Titanic and the agony of the First World War, sparkles with rich and authentic detail.

It is her position in society, and the rules of the world in which she lives and loves, that put the first obstacles in Natalie’s way. Although her father is rich, which in some ways makes her a good match, he is a self made man and as such cannot hope to compete with his more aristocratic neighbours on a level playing field.

This leaves Natalie in a position that leads to lies, cover-ups and ultimately heartache.

The story is written with a great deal of compassion and emotion and I really felt for Natalie as her relationships with those she loves – her father, her husband, and her son – were tested to the absolute limit.

I loved this book. It was a totally absorbing story with great characters, a great geographical and historical setting, and a satisfying plot.

Highly recommended.

Thanks very much to the author for a review copy of this book.

The book will be released at the end of July.
