Review:

I finished After the Last Dance with a massive smile on my face (post tears, that is). It's thrilling. I just loved Rose - old and young - and Jane was the perfect spiky lead that you know you shouldn't like but do anyway. * Julie Mayhew, author of The Big Lie * I was totally swept up in the world of Rainbow Corner - I didn't want to leave it - and equally was completely absorbed by Leo and Jane's story. Such a fantastic book, I feel very lucky to have read it * Jenny Ashcroft, author of Beneath a Burning Sky * After The Last Dance is an absolute beauty of a book. Stylish, atmospheric and utterly compelling, I couldn't put it down * Alexandra Brown, author of The Great Christmas Knit Off * Glorious, vivid and deeply seductive, with an ending that will make you weep for what once was * Lucy Robinson, author of The Greatest Love Story of All Time * Evocative, poignant, beautiful. Long live Rainbow Corner * Maggie Harcourt, author of The Last Summer of Us * A wonderfully absorbing story that you utterly lose yourself in. I read it in two nights and only wish it had been longer * Pippa Wright, author of The Foster Husband * After the Last Dance has fascinating settings, a compelling storyline with a skilful interplay of light and shadow, and vividly-realised characters that you immediately take to your heart. Sarra Manning's beautifully assured writing pulls you in from the very first page. * Margaret Leroy, author of The English Girl * I absolutely devoured After the Last Dance . . . Sarra has pulled off the almost impossible task of having two equally powerful strands with characters you're rooting for all the way . . . It works best of all as a love story. Two love stories really. And in that, it's just brilliant. For me, it had echoes of Me Before You * Tamar Cohen, author of The Mistress's Revenge * A lavishly detailed sweeping romance, which expertly captures a country at war * Sunday Mirror * Full of glamour, danger and more than a few swoon-some moments * Fabulous * Highly absorbing and atmospheric * Stylist * An absorbing, unconventional love story * Woman & Home * What a fascinating book. Such a gripping and unusual story of love and war - everyone needs a Rainbow Corner! * Rachel Hore, author of A Week in Paris * A deeply satisfying read on every level. It's spirited, unpredictable, evocative and engrossing. Impossible to put down. I loved it! * Santa Montefiore *
