I could not put this book down The conclusion is perfect A wonderful book written with insight, integrity and imagination ASK ME TO DANCE ( a woman’s attempt to recover from PTSS) Beautifully written and moving story The story stayed with me long after I had finished. Beautifully written An extremely moving story and a total page turner. ‘…deals movingly with grief and loss without sentiment and with a delicate touch’ This is a book with is impossible to categorise so very different from anything I have read. I was drawn into it immediately. Her descriptions are fantastic. I was infected by it and the feelings have lingered in me long after I closed the book’ ‘Brilliant tone. Surprisingly gripping’
Sylvia Colley with her sharp ear and clear, compassionate head is a poet to pay attention to Beautifully balances the comic with the tragic Tender and satirical about the triumphs and defeats of ordinary lives.
