A Time to Dance by Padma Venkatraman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just finished A Time to Dance by Padma Venkatraman and highly recommend it. Veda, an award winning dancer of traditional Indian Bharatanatyam, is in a horrific accident that leads to having one foot amputated. Dancing is all she has known and now it is taken away from her. However, Veda is fierce and will not go down without a fight. She's just going to have to relearn everything she ever knew about dance and life. Told in verse, Padma Venkatraman paints beautiful images that not only allow you to see the movement of Veda's world, but to hear music as she does, and feel her pain, humiliation, and hope.
