One Dance in Paris
by Julie Holden
I truly enjoyed this book. We meet a young woman who grew up without a mother. She is tall, gangly, and awkward. She goes on a journey to discover who her mother was and finds herself. She begins to see her own beauty. We see her open up and blossom as she learns the important lesson of loving and accepting oneself. It is a beautifully told story. I feel I should warn you that her mother was a showgirl and the reader will learn much of her life. The themes of knowing oneself, loving oneself, and being true to oneself are important and wonderfully written.
