Welcome to my stop on the Dancing to the Ends of the Earth Blog Tour. Dancing to the Ends of the Earth is written  by Felicity Price and published by California Times Publishing. Here’s a bit more about the book!

A passionate and compelling saga of two very different women – Etta Jackson, a young, impressionable immigrant miner’s wife and her granddaughter, Stephanie Hunter, sophisticated PR pro who has left behind her Gucci London lifestyle to return to her birthplace on the Wild West Coast of New Zealand.

Separated by three generations but linked by an emerging pioneering spirit, they each travel their own journey towards finding themselves and coming to terms with the raw honesty of the coast.

Based on real events, Dancing to the Ends of the Earth fictionalizes two significant periods of awakening in New Zealand’s history – the birth of the labor movement at the turn of the century, and the birth of environmental activism ninety years later.

My Thoughts:

*I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for sharing my fair and honest opinion*

I was so excited to read this book! Dancing to the Ends of the Earth is a beautifully written novel about two women, Etta and her granddaughter Stephanie.  This author did an amazing job in portraying both these two women and those around them in a realistic way that was extremely enjoyable to read about. I found myself immediately drawn into the story. Based on the synopsis, I wasn’t quite sure what the book entailed so I won’t give much away to you either, however I will say that I look forward to reading more from this author in the future. Her writing style is very… comfortable – in a good way. I’m not sure that’s the right word for what I’m trying to say, I just mean that I felt like this story was being told to me by a close friend over a cup of tea or coffee. I love books like that. If you do as well, then I highly recommend!
