Life has suddenly taken a confusing turn for Caroline, a happily
married middle-age dance teacher. Her daughter is getting married
to the richest man in town, about whom Caroline has serious doubts,
her estranged sister has turned up after being left by her husband,
the foundations of her house are crumbling and the dog has bitten
her husband on the leg. It threatens to get too much, but a strong
will and a supportive husband enable Caroline to survive the twists
and turns of family life with cheerfulness and confidence. Jeanne
Ray has a light touch and steers her story deftly amongst the rocky
relationships of Caroline's large family and their friends. Her
language is brilliant and often provokes laugh-out-loud moments of
pure comedy. Great fun. (Kirkus UK)
From the author of JULIE AND ROMEO, a warm and witty family
romance. The novel opens as Caroline, a local dance teacher, sits
down to dinner with her husband, Tom, and the telephone rings twice
in quick succession: first with the weeping of her daughter, Shaye,
and secondly with the rather more ominous sound of her distraught
sister, Taffy. It turns out that Shaye is weeping because she has
just been proposed to (by a man of whom Caroline and Tom don't
wholly approve), while Taffy is weeping because her husband has
just left her. Divorce, marriage, love and fidelity are the themes
of this heartwarming family romance. At its core is the solid
foundation of Caroline's long marriage to Tom and her desire to see
everyone around her happy. As is often the case, it takes several
twists and turns to resolve the many repercussions of both
announcements involving family gatherings, preparations for the
wedding - and quite a lot of dance.
