THE DANCE OF LOVE FORGED THEIR DESTINIES. THE MARCH OF TIME SHATTERED THEIR DREAMS.
Beatrice Crane and Bobby Bradley were Hollywood's greatest movie dance team, and nothing could keep them apart...

"Bea could have gone to the theater twice a day every day. She loved it. Her special favorites were the Astaires, especially Fred. His dancing made her want to run up onto the stage and join him."

Time Steps is a rags-to-riches to Hollywood super star story. It starts pre-depression era and follows Bea's life, loves and tragedies into the 1970s (I think it was the 70s - it's been a week since I finished this). More than that, I really don't want to give much away. This is definitely a book for H

THIS WAS THE FIRST "REAL" BOOK I EVER READ! I WAS YOUNG AND LOVED TO DANCE! THIS BOOK HAS GREAT EMOTIONS...YOU CAN TRUELY FEEL HOW AWEFUL IT WOULD BE IF SOMETHING YOU LIVED FOR WAS TAKING AWAY AND HOW GREAT IT IS TO FIGHT FOR IT AND WIN! (AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT BOBBY, I'M TALKING ABOUT DANCING!)

Давам толкова високи оценки на книгите на тази авторка,защото историите й са много интересни и различни.Има много неща ,които можеш да извлечеш като поуки. Единственото , което няма да хареса на по-младите читатели е стила, който вече е остарял.
