Ella Blythe has lived a life shrouded in secret, she holds tightly to her precarious position in a shrinking ballet company. Even though she knows the fate of most theater romances, she can't help but hope to catch the eye of principle dancer Phillipe, while avoiding the advances of the flirtatious Jack.
A intriguing read, filled with mystery and haunting suspense as secrets from the past are revealed. Ella loves to dance but struggles to find her stride, uncertainty and the ghost of another promising dancer haunt her every step. I liked her story arc, and how she learns to deal with anxiety and the unknowns of life on the stage.
A well written read, but a slower start, due to it taking awhile for the pieces to start coming together, and eventually giving some answers along with the growing number of questions. Mysterious and evocative, it is a page turning read full of secrets and worthwhile reveals. Definitely picks up speed as it goes along. I really enjoyed seeing Ella grow in her faith, and become more sure of herself. A twisting, and enjoyable read!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
