Dance Away with Me
by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
At long last, the legendary New York Times bestselling author returns with a heartfelt novel of womanhood, a wild heart, and the healing power of love.
Run, run, as fast as you can!
When life throws her one setback too many, midwife and young widow Tess Hartsong takes off for Runaway Mountain. In this small town high in the Tennessee mountains, surrounded by nature, she hopes to outrun her heartbreak and find the solace she needs to heal.
But instead of peace and quiet, she encounters an enigmatic artist with a craving for solitude, a fairy-tale sprite with too many secrets, a helpless infant, a passel of curious teens, and a town suspicious of outsiders, especially one as headstrong as Tess. Just as headstrong, is Ian North, a difficult, gifted man with a tortured soul—a man who makes Tess question everything.
In running away to this new life, Tess wonders— Has she lost herself . . . or has she found her future?
I am a diehard SEP fan. I usually have her books read as soon as they are published but with this one I missed it for some reason. When I went onto goodreads to investigate I saw a bunch of mixed reviews and was thinking to myself “What is going on here?!” I nearly didn’t buy it because of course her publisher has a very high price for her eBook’s which I really don’t like but I bite the bullet and bought it.
Tess has escaped to a cottage in the mountains to escape from the pain of her past. She really hasn’t escaped it all, nothing seems to help not even dancing in the middle of the night in the rain to music the dead could hear it’s so load.
Ian has escaped for an entirely different reason. He needs to find his mojo again. He needs to develop as an artist but he’s just not sure how to do this and with all of the distractions around him is it no wonder!
SEP has stepped outside her writing style box. She is normally a light-hearted story kind of author and this was pure dark, painful and full of two lost souls trying to find their way. I loved it and would highly recommend reading it.
