Publisher's Summary

By the acclaimed author of Wake: Where love is your only escape....
Nineteen-eleven: 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 and dance.
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 tale of unlikely love and dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which.

brilliant summer read

Where does The Ballroom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed the book and found I could not put it down.
I especially enjoyed the authors explanation at the end of where she got the idea.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ballroom?

I could not pick one thing.....I enjoyed all the characters

Beautifully read

I absolutely loved this book. An unusual love story set in an asylum back in 1911. The reader, Daniel Weyman, bought the characters to life and at points I was almost holding my breathe to listen.
