9781493542314: Learning to Dance Again

Julia Robertson is devastated after the sudden death of her husband Duncan. Her friends rally to support her, but with her sons away at Edinburgh University she still feels isolated in her grief. She is unemployed but has no wish to return to her old job as the manager of a care home; but she cannot decide what to do instead. With the approach of her fiftieth birthday that she has no desire to celebrate, together with the gloominess of her mood which will only get worse when winter arrives, Julia knows she needs to take drastic action to heal her broken heart. It was Duncan’s last wish to take her on a second honeymoon to Sicily. So Julia books herself a holiday for the whole of October; much to the surprise of her friends and to the horror of her sons, who are convinced she will be kidnapped by the Mafia. Julia ignores their warnings and rents a villa in the coastal town of Cefalu. The villa is owned by the charming Tony Hugo, a widowed English crime writer; who wastes no time in helping Julia feel at home. Sicily is everything Julia expected it to be – hot, sunny and exotic; but her holiday turns out to be far more of a life changing adventure than she could ever have imagined.

About the Author:

Frankie Valente lives in Shetland with her teenage son and his Siamese cat. She has a degree in Cultural Studies of the Highlands & Islands, and a Masters in Professional Writing. In 2007, after a lifetime's obsession with reading books, she decided to try and write one herself. The result was Dancing with the Ferryman which was published in 2011. This story was inspired by her life on the island of Whalsay in Shetland. The positive feedback she received from this encouraged her to carry on writing and in 2013 she published Dancing in Phoenix Park. She started writing this book during the 18 months she spent living in Ireland. She completed the novel after moving back to Shetland and finishing her Masters.
