After her doctor tells eighty-six-year-old Isabel Macauley that her breast cancer treatment has failed, she finds herself strangely transported to Ireland, to the island where she spent her childhood summers. There she has the chance to clear up the mystery surrounding the tragic death of her family and her own lifelong pain and bitterness. But will she have the courage to see the truth? Dancing on Ashes is the first novel by award- winning playwright Anne V. McGravie. It is a surprising novel of imagination and insight and the lovely language that McGravie's fans expect of her.
