About the Book

MY THOUGHTS

A classic Julie Klassen book with relatable characters full of real-life problems, poor choices that fuel both deep regrets and uncontrollable consequences, and honest conversations that encourage heart change. The author does a tremendous job of conveying pre-marital sex and an adulterous affair with sensitivity, not glossing over the details but as both events happened prior to the beginning of the story, she was able to convey little about the events themselves while dealing with the very real consequences that came from each affected character’s choices. While so much of the book dealt with deep hurts, Ms. Klassen did well to keep events moving along and hope within grasp, eventually ending the book with great redemption and restored hope.

DESCRIPTIONS FROM GOODREADS

Finding himself the man of the family, London dancing master Alec Valcourt moves his mother and sister to remote Devonshire, hoping to start over. But he is stunned to learn the village matriarch has prohibited all dancing, for reasons buried deep in her past.

Alec finds an unlikely ally in the matriarch’s daughter. Though he’s initially wary of Julia Midwinter’s reckless flirtation, he comes to realize her bold exterior disguises a vulnerable soul–and hidden sorrows of her own.

Julia is quickly attracted to the handsome dancing master–a man her mother would never approve of–but she cannot imagine why Mr. Valcourt would leave London, or why he evades questions about his past. With Alec’s help, can Julia uncover old secrets and restore life to her somber village. . .and to her mother’s tattered heart?

Filled with mystery and romance, The Dancing Master brings to life the intriguing profession of those who taught essential social graces for ladies and gentlemen hoping to make a “good match” in Regency England.
