I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour today for this special book. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.
About the book:
London 1974 – and Peter Greenberg is riding high. Thanks to his magic touch, every play he puts on in Theatreland is a hit and the money is rolling in. The young man’s empire feels secure – but then everything changes. One evening, he calls in to see a rival’s musical and falls head over heels in love.
The beautiful Paris-born dancer who catches his eye is Nadine – a major star in the making. Like Greenberg, the young dancer too is in love – but with someone else. The eternal triangle is complicated by the birth of a child, and by tragic secrets that go back before World War Two; slowly, those secrets reveal themselves in a drama that out-performs anything on the West End stage or Broadway.
Nadine is a poignant story of unrequited love, a love that will one day be returned – and in a most unexpected way…
This really is an epic story, and so enjoyable.
The novel is in three parts, and in the first part we meet the enigmatic and troubled Nadine. There’s an almost ethereal quality about her, and in spite of her great talent, her life is not an easy one.
Peter Greenberg is a likeable character, and Nadine is so important to him.
Without giving too much of the plot away, we move on in the subsequent two parts of novel, eventually coming to the present day. Nadine has an impact on all those whom she encounters, and this is the central thread pulling the main characters together.
A novel with love, the theatre, family, intrigue and drama, this is such an absorbing and entertaining book. One to savour. Highly recommended.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
