    " Good, enjoyable, but somewhat predictable- I knew everything was going to work out okay in the end. I am a sucker for the ballerina books, though. "

    " A sweeping story about a girl named Harriet who grows up in 1912 Cambridge, under the harsh rule of her strict and conservative father and aunt. When offered the opportunity to dance ballet with a Company that is going to perform overseas in the Amazon for the rich, Harriet sneaks off and finally follows her hearts wishes. There, free from the restraints of her father, her love of dancing grows while she also falls in love with a British exile. The beginning of the story that takes place in England is slow, but after Chapter three the book really takes off. Loved it!!! "

    " Not as good as I had hoped. An okay story, but seemed juvenile. Could have done without some of the promiscuity (even though it was only implied). "

    " This is AS good if not better than "A Countess Below Stairs", although very different. Lots of ballet/dancing loving, which is always great. Also, the hero (Rom) could be Edward Cullen's twin, which is extremely wierd since the 'villian's name is Edward. Again, 10 stars outof 5. This is the type of book that makes me glad reading and writing and books were invented. And it makes me thank God for romance. "
