Time To Dance

by Melvyn Bragg (Author), Melvyn Bragg (Author), Melvyn Bragg (Author)


A lifetime of restraint and placid affection erupts when a retired bank manager falls for a young girl, as far removed from him in background and experience as in age. Set in Cumbria, this is an intensely moving evocation of an overwhelming passion and its destructive kernel of jealousy.

Media Reviews
The narrative of the obsession is told with great verve and conviction, from the first fortuitous encounter...to the open-ended conclusion * Penelope Lively, Evening Standard *
Vibrantly erotic...brave and searingly honest..compulsively gripping * Graham Lord, Sunday Times *
It is a sexy book. It is a romantic book. Its heart is the dream of great passion * Philippa Gregory, The Sunday Times *
The key to the success of the book is its simplicity and unpretentiousness...makes convincing the disorderly and unreasoning passion of the orderly and reasoning man * Rose Tremain, Listener *
