Overview

Because Mother Liked to Dance by Joan Vincent

Because Mother Liked to Dance, a multigenerational fiction embodying the bittersweet nature of life, is the story of the Cullen family. Forced to leave New York City after his father's death, Nick Cullen brings his wife Joanna and their two children to New Jersey and attempts to establish an independent union at his new place of work. Joanna reluctantly accompanies Nick. She enjoys city life, has an excellent job there and has no wish to live next door to her mother Louise, a harsh, bitter woman. Emotionally guarded, a detached mother figure, Joanna slowly reveals her past life, and we learn about events she's kept secret and of the man she might have chosen.
Set in New York City and New Jersey during the 1950's, narrated by the daughter Meg, Because Mother Liked To Dance chronicles, in poignant, humorous and, at times, harsh episodes, how a family copes with stress brought on by change, and how dissension in family relationships develops over time . . . and is resolved.
