Book Description

A tale of love, deception and forgiveness …

After only one triumphant night of dancing ‘Giselle’, an unexplained injury forces Alana to withdraw temporarily from the dance company and relax her body on the Mediterranean beaches of Menorca, where she falls madly in love with a married man whose young daughter is inspired by her but whose past is inextricably connected to hers in ways that will forever haunt her.

'Dance to a Tangled Web' is a mesmerizing tale built teasingly around the underlying story of the ballet 'Giselle' as Alana dances towards her fate in the throes of two overwhelming passions - for her lover and for her art - a fate she will re-interpret in a startling way for all those whose lives she has touched.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of strands in this web May 27, 2014

Just finished reading "Dance to a Tangled Web" Really enjoyed it, although it's not the kind of book I'd normally pick up. I guess that's because even tho it's basically a romance, there were so many "tangled threads" woven through it and so many mixed emotions and different types of love described: passionate love, love of a child, love for an unborn child, caring love of another person and love of ballet. I liked that I could keep track of everything even tho the viewpoint shifted regularly. Sometimes when you read books with different voices and perspectives, you get a bit confused but this book was clear and easy to follow.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me April 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hmm. I got really bored at 49 % and leafed through the rest of the book. It was too slow for my taste and the way it was written from 3 different characters view, made it quite difficult for me to follow the story.
And the way where it was implied that something has happened, but nothing was said about the event.
I know I'm not making myself clear but the book wasn't that clear to me either.

Made me want to go and see the Giselle-balet, though.

Emotional involvement with the characters in a novel is the author's prerogative because without such involvement the protagonists do not necessarily come to life for the reader. The way in which Dance to a Tangled Web is written leaves the reader with little choice: you will not only live alongside each of the characters, you will want to influence their thoughts, their decisions, their emotions, and ultimately their relationships. You are allowed into the characters' minds, you come to understand why they think the way they do, but you are at an advantage: you know whether the paths they choose to follow are the right ones, they do not.
You will experience anger, sadness, joy, understanding, disgust, trust, anticipation, surprise, enmity, shame, pity, indignation, disbelief and envy. Any novel that takes you on such an emotional roller-coaster has to be worth reading ... and more than once.
Other reviews may give you an insight into the storyline, I will not. You can read what you need to know in the product description. What I need to do is convince you that Dance to a Tangled Web is worthy of the highest of accolades and the only way I can do that is to give it a 5* review and congratulate Sheila Mary Taylor on writing a novel that kept me spellbound from the very first chapter ... and then made me cry.

More About the Author

Born in Cape Town beneath the towering slopes of Table Mountain, married to mining engineer Colin Belshaw and mother of Colin, Peter and Andrew.

Sheila is a "swallow"; she lives from November to May in Cape Town, and May to November in the Mediterranean island of Menorca, with the odd month in the spring and autumn at her home in Wilmslow, England. She has books published under the names of Sheila Belshaw, Sheila Mary Taylor (her maiden name), and in the literary world is also known as Sheila Mary Belshaw.

All her books are available both as paperbacks and e-books. Her psychological legal/crime thriller set in Manchester, UK - "Pinpoint" - by Sheila Mary Taylor has been featured in the Kindle top 100 Mystery/Crime Bestseller list several times.

Her inspiring memoir "Fly With A Miracle" by Sheila Belshaw, published by Denor Press in 1999 about her son Andrew's heroic battle against teenage bone cancer is now available in an updated revised edition with the new title of "Count to Ten", by Sheila Mary Taylor, published by Taylor Street Publishing in San Francisco, for whom Sheila also works as an editor. (There is no family connection between Sheila and the publishers: the similarity in names is a coincidence.)

Her latest novel 'Dance to a Tangled Web', published in February 2013, is a romantic drama set in London and Menorca, and her work in progress is called 'Golden Sapphire'. This is set in the Gemfields of Queensland and in London, and is also a romantic drama. All Sheila's fiction is set in places she has lived in permanently, or knows very well.

There is also a short novella - 'Eldorado' set in Ghana.

With her editing hat on, Sheila recently resurrected and edited three of her late mother's unpublished novels - "Kathie", "Don't Tread on My Dreams", and "Rage of Life" by Dora Taylor, all of which were published in 2008 and 2009 by Penguin, 33 years after her mother's death. Dora Taylor subsequently won the South African Posthumous Literary Award.

Sheila loves writing romantic novels and has four romances published which will also soon be available as e-books on Amazon.
