Booklist Review

Brynn Halsted, prima ballerina for her Harlem dance troop, is living her dream when a premonition has her waiting for a catastrophe. She takes extra precautions, because she believes that if she couldn't dance, her life would be ruined. In fact, her sense of identity is so intertwined with her dancing, she's made little time for a personal life. Enter Simeon Storey, jazz club owner and composer, who has unfinished music for Brynn that he hasn't worked on for years because he believes she dissed him after a performance. They clear the air and start getting to know each other, but Brynn is brutally attacked at Simeon's club. Suddenly her career is over. Simeon and Brynn's friends and family all try to be supportive, but it is ultimately up to Brynn to accept the changes in her life and to take a chance at happiness. The modern Harlem renaissance is well represented by these two complex and talented characters, making this an extraordinary romance with broad appeal. --Patty Engelmann
