Dancing in the Dark by Joan Barfoot


Dancing in the Dark by Joan Barfoot

Edna is a perfect wife, a secret dreamer, and a murderer. Keeping her house scrupulously clean takes up almost all of her time, but when she closes her eyes, a whole new Edna comes into play.


A powerful story of obsession, infidelity and retribution. -Toronto Star A mournful but brilliant song ... Barfoot adds a new and chilling dimension to the old Christian truth that it is only through death that there is life. -Windsor Star

You can hardly bear to put it down. -London Free Press

So fluently and fluidly styled that you often forget you are reading. -Edmonton Journal
