Ask Me to Dance - äänikirja
Rose Gregory has suffered a devastating blow, a double bereavement from which months later she is still reeling.
Sanctuary and rest are prescribed by her doctor. But when she arrives at her refuge, a dank and decaying monastery, she finds it is not the haven promised.
Despite the veneer of calm contemplation, the monastery turns out to be a hotbed of intrigue and disharmony. Rose witnesses bullying and cruelty and ultimately in defence of the vulnerable turns to violence herself.
Sylvia Colley's extraordinary understanding of a woman's struggle to deal with grief - the denial, the anger, the loneliness - is described without sentimentality. A beautifully written and moving story.
