Summary Note Joan Joyce is a professional ballet dancer who has always believed that she is destined for a life in the shadows. When her love affair with Russian supremo Arslan Rusakov ended, she ran back into the arms of childhood sweetheart, Jacob Bintz. Now pregnant, Joan is fated to leave New York. Under the hazy Californian sun, Joan is unaware of the fascination she invites from others. She lacks the sexuality of neighbour, Sandy; the cocksure nature of Sandy's husband and the intellect and dependable nature of Jacob. To her mind, all she can offer is ballet. To occupy her days, she opens a small dance studio. Her son Harry demonstrates a natural aptitude alongside Sandy's daughter, Chloe. Theirs is a talent that will take them to the top, to a summer school in New York and to a world of emotions and relationships that Joan felt sure she had left behind.
