Dancing Home – Description

Serena, the central figure in these linked stories and a born New Yorker, is outrageous, stubborn, mystical and deeply engaged with love of all kinds: emotional, physical, intellectual, and with an intimacy that extends into the wider realms beyond the visible world. The stories begin with her birth and follow her life and the lives of her friends and lovers. We meet Ingrid, artist and wild woman; Rose, sensible and intelligent, with a dry wit; Leo, architect and musician, a compassionate, soulful and endearing man and many others, whose origins and connected lives reveal the paradoxes, struggles, bliss and complexities of love. The stories embrace the sensual world and the capacity to hold it with an open heart. They explore the grace of loving in a variety of ways.

As Dancing Home unfolds, Serena’s intuition leads her to an enhanced relationship with a larger reality and the challenges of integrating that world with ordinary life.

Ultimately, this puzzle of who the characters are and the nature of their intertwined lives plays itself out and comes to a fluid conclusion.

Dancing Home is a love affair with New York and to the affairs of love.

Dancing Home – Review

Julie Winter has created a world of vivid detail where beauty and suffering are gracefully intertwined. Serena’s haunting vulnerability and courage to pursue her purpose and to seek what lies beyond our limited perceptions in a world that may be in opposition more often than not is a beautiful reminder for us to stay curious and trust our own journeys as they unfold.

We experience Serena’s joys and pain which reflect the duality of the human experience. In her story, we realize that both can exist as healing takes place.
