Mary Sheeran follows her critically praised novel, Who Have the Power, with a passionate blend of fiction and nonfiction that explores the world of ballet, in particular, the ballets of George Balanchine. The year is 1988, and the setting is a gala performance at the New York City Ballet, the late George Balanchine's company. Dancer John Fencer struggles with career and romantic frustrations, as well as the manipulations of a wealthy patron who believes she owns all ballet as well as the people who create it. But a much less prominent member of the audience holds the key to everyone's destiny. www.questofthesleepingprincess.com

I pointed out that B&N took a long time to post the cover for this book; once my note to that effect appeared, the cover appeared in quick succession. So now I can't pull this review! I've simply stated here what makes this book different from some of the other ballet stories circulating of late. My book is about what else happens in the dancing - it's not just about steps. It's also about the audience, not the rich elite, but audiences seeking for meaning in both life and dance. Oh, but I do pick on rich patrons.
