Overview

Jeanette Connor's struggle to reclaim her life carries her to California-a land of opportunity-and looming nightmares.

It's winter in Chicago, 1955, and Jeanette Conner is on the brink of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A contract with the New York City Ballet. But her mother has other ideas for the 16-year-old prodigy, and a tragic die is cast. Thrown into deep depression by her mother's actions, the teenager shifts her trust to the wrong people. This earns her a kidnapping and a violent turn as a teenage prostitute, ending when she is left for dead in a snow-covered vacant lot.

Rescued in time by a twist of fate, she must now put her broken body and shattered emotions back together.

Editorial Reviews

J.D. Webb
-Be prepared to run the gamut of your emotions. Devil's Dance will break your heart, patch it up, deflate it again and finally make it whole. The story is of betrayal, sexual abuse, abandonment and a superhuman effort to overcome all obstacles. Aspiring dancer Jenny Connor endures excruciating pain and suffering and yet somehow triumphs.
Sid Weaver
Devil's Dance is a compelling but disturbing story that will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next disaster to befall the wonderful Jeanette Conner.
