The Dancer is a simple story of a young woman in love, a young woman who is trying to find out who she is. While the story is simple, the manner in which it unfolds is anything but. And sometimes, the ride is so wild, it has everyone, including the author, hanging on to their seats.
The Dancer starts on the stage, and that’s where it ends. In between, it goes to the beach, to an artist’s studio, to a native village. We come to understand that the artist’s studio and native village are other worlds. Will the dancer find true love? Will she find her place in the world?
In the second story, the dancer, a chief, a shaman, a god who is a horse, and the dancer's other close friends must heal the holes that have developed between the worlds.
In audiobook three, the dancer becomes the dancer magnifique, and the story focuses more on her daughter, who is now the dancer.
