A novel of family trauma, misunderstandings, guilt and forgiveness. Gently told, the sadness of a cheating husband slowly unfolds in a lovely West Country setting. Although those knowing the area may dispute some of the routes travelled, e.g. Taunton to Exmoor via both the Blackhills and the Quantocks does seem a bit odd, but it’s the story we must follow, not the roads! The story of Judith and Jack and their future happiness, or not., is very typical of Susan Sallis, a lovely read.

If you like Susan Sallis you might also like to read books by Marcia Willett, Charlotte Bingham and Santa Montefiore.

Synopsis

Learning to Dance by Susan Sallis

Judith is suddenly all alone in the world. Her husband, Jack, has left her - why, she doesn't really know. Her two sons are in Australia, and both her mother and her best friend Naomi have recently died. Embarking on a journey to Exmoor to meet the famous artist Robert Haussman, with an oddly assorted group of fellow-enthusiasts, Judith finds herself a prey to all sorts of irrational fears. Chief amongst them is the increasing conviction that Jack is dead. Why did he leave her? Where has he gone? And why does Robert Haussman exert such a strange influence on her? Set in the Somerset countryside which Susan Sallis knows so well, this heartwarming novel shows how life, love and art cannot always meet happily together.
