The Night Dance by Suzanne Weyn
Rowena is the youngest of the twelve and the most curious. One day, she discovered that there was an
opening in the wall that surrounded the castle. Soon she was able to convince her sisters to join her in an
adventure on the other side of the wall. They meet a group of knights: Bedivere, a handsome young
knight, falls in love with Rowena when she and her sisters were dancing in the magical forest. Sadly, their
love is forbidden but they risk everything even their lives for a chance at love. This novel is written
differently compared to other. It does not focus on one character, but many. Each chapter there is a new
character voice and we can read about all the thoughts that the characters have and the feelings they
share. The Night Dance is historical fiction but is also a fairy tale that has been rewritten which made me
like this book even more.
