Echoes of the Dance
We had been searching for the setting for this book for a long time before, quite accidentally, we stumbled on this ford at Bowithick. As soon as we pulled up, Marcia went for a walk and returned smiling broadly.’ This is it!@ She said. And it was.

Acclaimed as one of the world’s leading ballerinas, Mim was forced to give up dancing after a tragic accident. A friend who ran a successful stage school persuaded her to join the business, knowing that her name would attract more pupils. Min accepted the offer when it was agreed that the dancing classes would be her own special province.

Now, nearly twenty-five years later, history is repeating itself. Daisy, Mim’s protégée and most talented former pupil, us suffering from injuries and she too will have to rethink her career. To give her time to consider her future, Mim arranges for Daisy to holiday in Cornwall, in the strange and beautiful house on the edge of Bodmin Moor where Mim's brother, Roly Carradine, is living.

Daisy, starting a new love affair, has difficulty in concentrating on her future, but her curiosity and devastating self-awareness enable Roly to take a fresh look at his relationship with the newly widowed Kate Porteus. Meanwhile, the arrival of Roly's ex-wife forces their son, Nat, to confront some unfinished business.
