Serena, the central figure in these linked stories and a born New Yorker, is outrageous, stubborn, mystical and deeply engaged with love of all kinds: emotional, physical, intellectual, and with intimacy that extends into the wider realms beyond the visible world. The stories begin with her birth and follow her life and the lives of her friends and lovers. We meet Ingrid, artist and wild woman; Rose, sensible and intelligent, with a dry wit; Leo, architect and musician, a compassionate, soulful and endearing man and many others, whose origins and connected lives reveal the paradoxes, struggles, bliss and complexities of love. The stories embrace the sensual world and the capacity to hold it with an open heart. They explore the grace of loving in a variety of ways.
As Dancing Home unfolds, Serena’s intuition leads her to an enhanced relationship with a larger reality and the challenges of integrating that world with ordinary life.
Ultimately, this puzzle of who the characters are and the nature of their intertwined lives plays itself out and comes to a fluid conclusion.
Dancing Home is a love affair with New York and to the affairs of love.
In this book, Julie Winter touches on areas of the human experience that I have read nowhere else in any literature anywhere. Serena is a unique character, and this is a unique book. A must read for anyone interested in the journey inward.
