After a betrayal by her first love and a prison sentence for the crime of another, the adult Lulu meets the young woman Jamila and her mother-in-law-to-be, Zahra. The three women's lives intertwine through their loves and their beliefs. Can the mysterious Enoch help them to release their pain and revive their hearts, or will the betrayals of others throw them into a hell of despair?
Judy weaves Dancing in the Shadows of Love into a tapestry of words. She uses past, present, and future; first person and third person, and different perspectives through different eyes to show the complexity and heart-wrenching sorrow of life. Though her characters know what is right, they can’t always find it, follow it, or surrender to it. Through their successes and failings she displays the many facets of faith and sin.
Her scenery feels like a strange mix of another world and this one, fluctuating between the two in a fascinating mix. Some scenes feel like an ancient barbaric past, and others feel like modern times. I enjoyed her interesting symbolism, and though I didn't always feel I understood each nuance, they created a mystical and emotional feel for the scenes.
This story deserves more than one read just to soak in all the meaning. Bravo to Judy for a beautiful tale! I approve this title for Awesome Indies. [...]
I received this book from the author for the purposes of an unbiased review.
DANCING IN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE by author Judy Croome is a fantastically woven tale of the lives of three women and their journey to find peace within themselves.
Lulu, Jamila and Zahra each have their own secrets from their past. There's the elegant Mrs Grace Templeton to whom Jamila and Zahra aspire to as they search to find their own place as a Templeton wife.
Lulu is an albino who has faced strong prejudices throughout her life, and has been betrayed, but her strength is formidable as she learns to trust in human nature again.
Jamila and Zahra have their childhood secrets of severe poverty and abuse to fight as they struggle toward an improved, more ideal life for themselves.
This story has well developed characters and the depth to the characters and intense emotions portrayed is simply fantastic and satisfying.
The story moves along a good pace going through these three main characters past and present and we get to know them along their journey.
War, love, betrayal, hardship and prejudice have always been a fact of life and would always be. And by this book you grasp that by being as timeless and as placeless as you want to be.
DANCING IN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE is a truly magical read and I eagerly await the author, Judy Croome's next book!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a truly thought-provoking story; a story that will remain with you long after you've read the last line. I look forward to reading more from this talented new author of literary fiction.
Although the story takes place in a purposely undefined place and time, the characters are painfully real. The story follows three women, each with a damaged soul, as they yearn to be loved, but first they need to define love and, in order to do that, they must learn to forgive. The mysterious Enoch is their guide for this spiritual journey.
Judy Croome's writing is impeccable and her insight into the soul of man astounding. I believe this book came straight from her heart--and that heart is a large and beautiful one.
If I could, I'd give this book six stars. I'm definitely looking forward to her next one.
