It's emotional, touching, and strong. Hester's Story is a book I'll never forget. It's private world of International Ballet brings very seductive, colorful, and spellbinding characters to the table and we can enjoy each page with devotion and an open heart.
Geras, tells us Hester's story through the eyes of the children and the adults with such ease and tenderness that the end result is to go buy her first novel if you still haven't read it (such is my case, I will order it ASAP) but it also takes you to your own depths and you feel for Hester; you feel her surprises and her falls, you feel her own mind at work. It's an exceptional novel. I recommend you embrace silent corners when reading this book since the smallest sounds may become annoying once you are wrapped up in the story and the stories within it.
A superb read!
