Overview

Women of the Metro Ballet captures the spice and spirit of New Orleans as it zooms in on an Uptown neighborhood, and specifically on the Common Grounds coffee shop. At its center are four young mothers who are struggling to raise their children, form meaningful relationships, and run their often hectic households. But encircling them are several impeding factors, including difficult sibling relationships, disengaged spouses, domestic abuse, and finally, life-threatening illness. Women of the Metro Ballet is a nontraditional narrative showing the inner life of the four women trying to find themselves, and how finding Common Grounds may be what ultimately saves them.
Women of the Metro Ballet is geared toward an adult female audience, ranging from age 35-80. Written in the first person from five different perspectives, the book distinguishes itself by exploring the complex relationships women have with their children, their friends, their husbands, and themselves.
