The Dance of the Dolls (Hardcover)
The Dance of the Dolls tells the story of identical twin ballerinas rehearsing for the ballet Copp lia at the recently opened Sadler's Wells Theatre in London. Superficially, even their differences are complementary: Olivia aspires to be the perfect ballerina while Clara is rebellious and independent. Clara has been seeing a pianist at the theater, the passionate Nathan, while Olivia is unaware that she's cast a spell on Samuel, a bashful apprentice ballet shoemaker who steals into Sadler's Wells as often as he can to watch her dance. But as the sisters rehearse, danger lurks. The story of Copp lia--about a young man who becomes obsessed with a life-size doll--threatens to become a dark and sinister reality. Samuel dreams of being recognized by Olivia and wonders how far he'd go to achieve his goal, while Nathan, a musical child prodigy, struggles to adapt to adulthood and begins to blur the lines between reality and his dark fantasy world . . . Ashe has penned one of the most unputdownable books of 2023, perfect for anyone who found themselves captivated by the suspense-driven series and films Dare Me, Black Swan, and Luckiest Girl Alive. The Dance of the Dolls mesmerizes and will fulfill your sister books wish list and penchant for psychological suspense thrillers such as If We Were Villains, by M. L. Rio.
