Erik Fiskare's father left home when he was small and never once made contact with his son, he left a hole in Erik's life which Erik strove hard to shut. We meet Erik as he begins college life, he steps into the world of theatre and ballet as part of the back stage technical teams, being a part of the lighting, and scenery.
The moment he looks into the eyes of dancer Daisy Bianco something shifts in Erik's soul, a meeting of like minds. Daisy is calm in the chaos and is a focused dancer. They begin a relationship which is youthful and passionate. They have a close knit group of friends and they thrive on the creativity which the group produces.
On stage Daisy dances with Will in perfect union, off stage her dance is with Erik. New boy James joins college and filters into the group, he is erratic and falls in love with Will. All their lives are thrown off kilter when a violent gun shooting in the theatre, puts Daisy and Will in hospital and Erik became the hero who faced down the gun barrel and walked away. But the aftermath was devastating.
The group spiralled down in depression, they turned to drugs and went to lengths to create pain to block out the nightmares. A mis-carriage , a betrayal and Erik shuts down and walks away for twelve years. Even distancing himself didn't stop the nightmares and only counselling stopped him ending it all.Read more ›
At the beginning it took me a little while to grasp the lingo, especially because ashamedly I'm not familiar with any aspect of performing arts, but I quickly got into the swing of things and the fact that I now know what a pas de deux is, amongst other ballet words and phrases, has me thinking I really want to watch a ballet performance, but really that isn't even the start of what I loved about this book.
Erik, meet Daisy. They're soul mates, but love never runs smooth in the world of fiction, so what we have is one event that spirals into a multitude of things, causing both Daisy and Erik to make huge mistakes that will irrevocably change the courae of their lives. I'm talking edge of your seat stuff at times, theoretical screaming at certain characters because you know they've made the wrong choices and you've no idea what's coming next.
There is sensitive subject matter that some readers may be put off by, but I felt it was handled with care and dignity and dare I say beautifully.
I truly loved Erik. He was the strength within a small group of students. The way he and Daisy interact and are so open and honest with one another was completely refreshing.
Daisy was a little more of a mystery to me and even though she was to blame for a lot of things that transpired, I really felt that she had paid the price needed and hoped and prayed for a happy ever after for the couple. Do they get that?Read more ›
