Wednesday, February 19, 2014

When Alec Valcourt moves his Mother and Sister from London to Beaworthy England there are more surprises in store than he would have thought. Being a Dancing Master he runs into trouble when he finds out the village matriarch had prohibited dancing years ago. But determined to provide for his Mother and Sister he must figure something out. And he finds a unlikely ally Julia, the matriarch's daughter. At first he is wary of her reckless flirtation, but finds her bold way of acting may be to hide her own sorrows and vulnerable soul.

Julia Midwinter has grown up in a world without dancing or going to London like other girls her age. And is tried of being trapped in the little village of Beaworthy. When she meets the new family who has moved to Beaworthy she is quickly attracted to Alec. But with him not being in the same upper class as her family, and a Dancing Master no less, her Mother would not approve of someone like him.

But will secrets from his past catch up with him and mess up his future? And what other things may be revealed that have been hidden in Beaworthy history for years.

The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen is a wonderful book! I love Historical Fiction and this was another great one. It took place back in the early 1800's and sounded very real. It has a great story and had a lot of mystery! I was happily surprised with how much mystery was in the story, I was not expecting so much and really enjoyed it. Julie Klassen did a wonderful job on this book and I would love to read her other books as well!

I received this book free from Bethany House for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
