1911: Inside an asylum at the edge of the Yorkshire moors, where men and women are kept apart by high walls and barred windows, there is a ballroom vast and beautiful. For one bright evening every week they come together and dance. When John and Ella meet It is a dance that will change two lives forever. Set over the heatwave summer of 1911, the end of the Edwardian era, THE BALLROOM is an historical love story. It tells a page-turning tale of dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which.


AUTHOR: ANNA HOPE was born in Manchester and educated at Oxford University and RADA. THE BALLROOM is inspired by the true story of her great-great-grand-father. She is the author of the acclaimed debut novel WAKE. Follow her on Twitter @Anna_Hope
