Julie Klassen’s “The Dancing Master” giveaway and “All Things Jane” webcast 1/23!

The Dancing Master-
By Julie Klassen

Finding himself the man of the family, London dancing master Alec Valcourt moves his mother and sister to remote Devonshire, hoping to start over. But he is stunned to learn the village matriarch has prohibited all dancing, for reasons buried deep in her past.
Alec finds an unlikely ally in the matriarch’s daughter. Though he’s initially wary of Julia Midwinter’s reckless flirtation, he comes to realize her bold exterior disguises a vulnerable soul–and hidden sorrows of her own.
Julia is quickly attracted to the handsome dancing master–a man her mother would never approve of–but she cannot imagine why Mr. Valcourt would leave London, or why he evades questions about his past. With Alec’s help, can Julia uncover old secrets and restore life to her somber village…and to her mother’s tattered heart?
Filled with mystery and romance, The Dancing Master brings to life the intriguing profession of those who taught essential social graces for ladies and gentlemen hoping to make a “good match” in Regency England.

MY THOUGHTS-What a delightful book! I always enjoy picking up a novel by Julie Klassen because I know I will get my money's worth, and it will keep me turning pages into the middle of the night:) And this one definitely fit the bill for both of those reasons. This is over 400 pages but it is not one of those that drags on and you feel like it could have been done in half the amount of time. You will be drawn into it without any delay and believe me, it is worth the read. 

This book has two stories in it and I have to tell you, I almost like the subplot better:) The main characters would be Alec Valcourt and Julia Midwinter. Julia is quite the flirt and seems to not care for anyone but herself. Alec is hardworking and loyal to a fault, even when it means taking the blame for someone else. He was my favorite of the two. Quite dashing as well;)

If you enjoy a novel with plenty of depth and people that make you like them, this is the book for you. I wanted to find out the mysteries between the characters and why dancing was outlawed in this city. Wonderful book that I would urge you to pick up. Loved it!!
