"Absolutely heart-breaking. One of the best books I’ve ever read."
(DINAH JEFFERIES, author of The Tea-Planter's Wife)
"Compelling, elegant and insightful"
1911: Inside an asylum at the edge of the Yorkshire moors,
where men and women are kept apart
by high walls and barred windows,
there is a ballroom vast and beautiful.
For one bright evening every week
they come together
When John and Ella meet
It is a dance that will change
two lives forever.
Set over the heatwave summer of 1911, the end of the Edwardian era, The Ballroom
is a historical love story. It tells a page-turning tale of dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which.
