You can’t go wrong with a book by Julie Klassen. I’ve read everyone, and I’m never disappointed. She tells a great story, a story that is clean and uplifting; and, when I’m done reading the story, I always feel like it was time well spent because I have a positive outlook on life.
The Dancing Master is no exception. Reading it is like going back in time to visit a place you've never been and people you’ve never met. The characters are true to the period. The plot is enjoyable and fulfilling. And you'll learn something along the way.
No, this is not one of those "grip-you-by-the-seat-of-your-pants" novels. There's no life or death threat, no kidnappings, no murders, or other vices that are included in so many novels today. It's just a comfortable story about life in another time and place and how the people interact with each other during that era. There's just enough romance to make you smile; and, no, there are no sex scenes. Just innocent, sweet romance.
If you're looking for an entertaining read with good moral values, I highly recommend any book Klassen has written, including this one, The Dancing Master.
