Dancing Backwards in High Heels
At forty-two, Madeleine Huchinson is in a rut. Newly arrived in Australia from America, she is struggling to cope with two children, a flagging marriage and an overwhelming sense of invisibility. One winter evening while trying to get her sick son to a GP, she glimpes couples dancing, touching and laughing in a warmly lit studio. Attracted to this new world and reminded of her younger self, she decides to join a Latin American dance class. Maddy starts reclaiming her identity on the dance floor - facing choices that threaten her marriage and tempations that could see her lose everything.
