The best moments in dance are the unscripted ones

At their core, all theater romances are tragedies. Ella Blythe knows this. Still, she cannot help but hope her own story may turn out different than most–and certainly different than the tragic story of the Ghost of Craven Street Theater.

After a chance encounter with one of the ballet company’s handsome dancers late one night, Ella is swept off her elegantly pointed toes. The dance they share and the promise he makes to her feel like a new beginning. Yet as she faces mounting challenges in the ever-shrinking ballet company, Ella cannot deny the uncanny feeling that her life is mirroring that of the ghostly ballerina.

Is she dancing ever closer to the edge of her own disastrous end? Or will the secrets that are about to come to light offer release from the unyielding grip of the past?

My thoughts:

Joanna has such a unique voice and comes up with the most interesting story ideas. This one might be my favorite.

I liked Ella a lot, she was determined and truly loved the Lord.

Joanna did a great job of keeping the reader guessing and wondering about so many aspects of the story. What was the real deal behind Ella’s mother’s romance. Which man would capture Ella’s heart and how would they mend fences at the end.

Oh and what an ending. There is a major surprise within those last few pages that I NEVER saw coming and I LOVED it.

If you like historical romance I am sure you will like this book.
