Throwback Thursday: 1 July 2021

I’m linking up today with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for Throwback Thursday. It takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month (i.e., the Thursday before the monthly #6Degrees post). The idea is to highlight one of your previously published book reviews and then link back to Davida’s blog.

This month I’m looking back at my review of The Dance of Love by Angela Young, which I first posted on 21 July 2014. It is a coming-of-age tale set in the same era as Downton Abbey. It spans two decades of vast historical change (1899-1919).  I read it because I had enjoyed her first book, Speaking of Love.

Here’s the first paragraph:

Angela Young‘s new novel The Dance of Love is historical fiction set at the turn of the twentieth century between 1899 and 1919. It is outstanding and I loved it so much. At times as I read it I could hardly see the pages through my tears – and there have not been many books that have that effect on me.  It’s a brilliant book, both a heart-rending love story and a dramatic story too, as the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and the devastating and tragic effects of the First World War impact on the characters’ lives.

The next Throwback Thursday post is scheduled for 5  August 2021.

One thought on “Throwback Thursday: 1 July 2021

  1. I do like that idea of going back over one’s earlier reviews, Margaret. Among other things, I think it can give a look at how one’s taste develops over time, and of how and when one ‘meets’ new authors.
