Summary
  • "1911: Inside an asylum on the edge of the Yorkshire moors, where men and women are kept apart by high walls and barred windows, there is a ballroom, vast and beautiful. For one bright evening every week, they come together and dance. When John and Ella meet, it is a dance that will change two lives forever. Set during the heat wave in the summer of 1911 at the end of the Edwardian era, this is a tale of unlikely love and dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and the delicate balance between the two"--
  • 1911. Inside Sharston Asylum on the edge of the Yorkshire moors, men and women are kept apart by high walls and barred windows. There is a ballroom, vast and beautiful, and for one bright evening every week the inmates come together and dance. When John and Ella meet they strike up a tenuous courtship. When one gets a chance to leave Sharston for good, John and Ella face a dilemma: whether to cling to familiar comforts or to confront a new world-- living apart, yet forever changed
Summary
After a moment of defiance at the factory where she works, Ella Fay finds herself at the Sharston Asylum. John Mulligan is a patient there as well, frozen with grief since the death of his child, but when Ella runs towards him one morning in an attempt to escape, everything changes. In the ornate ballroom, where the male and female patients are allowed to gather once a week to dance, Ella and John begin a secret correspondence.
