Carlson delivers another lighthearted Christmas story, just in time for the season!
In London, 1833, a young ballerina, Ella, encounters a young male ballerina who captures her heart as she sneaks in dances in the theater. Many years later, she returns to the theater as a true ballerina. Ella reconnects with her mystery dancer and tries to win his heart. At the same time, Ella looks to discover the truth about her mother, a former prima ballerina who almost lost her life in the theater. Through her journey, she meets a mentor who befriends her and helps her on her search for truth as he also waits for her heart.
This is a beautifully written book that explores the hidden world of the theater in the 1800s. The truth Ella discovers is a surprise in some ways. There is action and romance. The characters are set up so that readers can’t help but discover has become one of our best friends. The plot was extremely well done and will pull readers in throughout the story. Not one of my typical reads, but Politano always manages to keep me coming back to her stories again and again!
