      Book ReviewTitle: Dancing in the DarkAuthor: Susan MoodyGenre: Romance/Young adult/DramaRating: * *Review: A successful garden designer, deprived of the idealized father her globe-trotting mother had presented to her, searches for his true-life replacement.When the mother who’s raising you alone while moving from India to England to Italy is crazy, there aren’t many constants in your life. But one thing Theodora Cairns has been able to depend on is the painting of her father, Col. John Vince [...]

      I found this to be a beautiful and haunting story of a woman's search for her parents and her own self understanding. It contains wonderful descriptions of English gardens interspersed with dark themes of child abandonment and sexual abuse in the Catholic church. Woven into it all is the relationship with a man who comes with his own parental baggage. The title is quite fitting but unfortunate because it is shared with so many other books.

      I enjoy books that focus on relationships, and so I enjoyed this read. Theodora was raised in a rather unique way and it certainly impacted her social skills. As she blunders through her day to day, she falls in love and tries to rebuild the relationship with her mother and discover the truth of who really is her father. She eventually discovers the reason for her bizarre upbringing. This book is about perspective, self awareness and forgiveness.

      Well-written, but it didn't really start the plot until more than halfway through the book.

      I loved this book. Wonderful story, character development, and writing. The problem of not being part of a series is never to learn more about characters about whom you have grown to care.

    • Carla says:

      I really enjoyed this book. It is beautifully written, and has unique characters. Moody really makes you care about each of the characters.

      A wonderful story describing the relationship between a mother and her daughter and running throughout the pages is the story of her father. One of my favourite reads so far.
