Dancing On Snowflakes
By Malcolm Macdonald
A wonderful coming of age novel about a young woman's search for independence at the end of the Victorian era, from the bestselling author of the Stevenson saga
'A natural successor to the late Ronald Delderfield' Yorkshire Post
Chaperoned at every turn in her Dublin home, Kate O'Barry's horizons have been limited. When her exasperated parents pack her off to her uncle's house in Stockholm hoping that her infatuation with an unsuitable young man will pass, they have no idea what mischief their decision will cause.
Kate sets out to experience life on her own terms, from the fairytale castle of Valholm, hereditary seat the dashing Count Hamilton, to the wretched tenements of the poor. Along the way she learns important lessons - about independence, responsibility and love.
Bestselling author Malcolm Macdonald was born in Gloucestershire in 1932. After thirteen years as a non-fiction writer he turned to the richly-documented and compulsive historical novels for which he has been named the 'natural successor to the late Ronald Delderfield'. He lives with his wife in Ireland. For more information, visit www.malcolmmacdonald.org.
