Join Tori Eldridge, bestselling author of the Lily Wong mystery series, on tour to launch her new novel, Dance Among the Flames! Terry Shepherd is flying in from the East Coast to lead this awesome conversation.
A desperate mother rises from the slums of Brazil to become a powerful wielder of Quimbanda magic. Across forty years, three continents, and a past incident in 1560 France, Serafina Olegario tests the boundaries of love, power, and corruption as she fights to escape her life of poverty and abuse. Passion. Horror. Betrayal. It's dangerous to dance in the fire. But when you come from nothing, you have nothing to lose.
"Astonishing and challenging...Eldridge masterfully navigates the nuances of Brazilian religious syncretism and takes a deep and daring look into the issues of colorism, class, generational trauma, and...abuse. Spanning decades and generations, this is both a page-turner and an emotional powerhouse." - Publishers Weekly starred review
