“If you tell me the facts, I’ll learn. If you tell me the truth, I’ll believe. But if you tell me a strong story, it may live in my heart forever.” (An ancient proverb) A historical novel may do just that.

A quote from someone who read Daughters of the Dance—
Engaging….Don’t let the title..fool you. In the author’s debut novel, Armida reveals an uncanny ability to create believable, complex characters and to develop them within a historical setting, which she has ably constructed. – TVA
