It's not a romantic novel but a novel about the passion that drives people to work beyond what most people would endure to do that which they love most to do..to dance. And about the cut throat world of ballet, the ever present judgement, and envy, and love and hate that shapes the human condition, sometimes beyond endurance. I last read this book at least 20 years ago and was very pleased to see it available here on Audible. I enjoyed every minute of this story like it was yesterday. It reads relevant today even though it was first published in 1978. And Angela Goethals does a beautiful job narrating. I can't imagine feeling this was a wasted credit although there is a character that until the end is quite tedious and a few that are rather unsettling. But every story has those...

This was a great story--fast-paced, fascinating inside knowledge of ballet incorporated throughout, sympathetic characters and situations, good closure, and the narration was very good, too. I played it on 1.25 speed which was perfect to my ear. I looked forward to listening everyday. Definitely recommend it!
