Invitation to the Waltz by Rosamond Lehmann

Luminous writing, a sensitive and charming heroine and an evocative coming-of-age story! What could be better?  I loved this novel about young and clever Olivia who longs to escape from her dull village and who is sometimes envious of her pretty sister Kate.  Olivia gains a new lease of life when she is invited to her first dance.  Told that she can 'carry off something out of the usual' by her dressmaker, she starts to see her attractiveness and grows more confident.

However, will the dance really be as exciting as Olivia imagines? Will she be able to cope with the rather intimidating upper-class family holding the dance?  Will she be a success or  a 'wallflower'? All of these thoughts run through Olivia's mind as she prepares for her big night. During the course of the long night, Olivia learns many difficult lessons.

I must read all of Rosamond Lehmans's novels after reading this!

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
