Description

In the mellow stone house of his childhood, Roly Carradine has found refuge from a broken marriage. Here he welcomes Kate, who has just lost her husband, and young Daisy Quin, a dancer recovering from a back injury. Roly's son Nat lives not far away, and he must suffer visits of his unsympathetic mother Monica, Roly's ex-wife. All seek peace and quiet, but the disclosure of a secret proves that life is not so simple. . . .

Treating Marcia Willett's ardent fans to a return visit with some of her most endearing characters from previous books, Echoes of the Dance is a gem of a story to be savored.
