Heather Tradescent had planned to tour England's historic gardens with her beloved father; but after his unexpected death, she takes off on her own, on a sad pilgrimage. Just when she is about to give it all up and return home, she decides to visit one last estate, Troytan House. Turned away at the very unhistoric electronic gate, she discovers a back way onto the property and unexpectedly meets the lord of the manor. Impressed by her knowledge of gardens and mazes, he insists that Heather stay on and help him restore the grounds. Reluctantly, she agrees, only to find herself all too quickly listening to hair-raising tales of local witchcraft, chasing a feral cat, struggling to find a way into the estate's seemingly impenetrable maze, and having to solve a bizarre murder. Penned in Barbara Michaels's inimitable witty and delightful style, The Dancing Floor leads readers through its own twisting, teasing maze of mystery with a hint of the occult.
