Presents a first person account of passion, murder and cultural conflict played out in the person of the young Ann Goodman, who is torn by 'the struggle for supremacy in her mixed blood', Welsh and English. In this love story, set in the late nineteenth century, the rural way of life is no idyll, but a savage and exacting struggle for survival.
Margiad Evans (Peggy Whistler) was born in Uxbridge in 1909, and lived in the Border area in Ross- on-Wye. She adopted the Welsh nom de plume, Margiad Evans, out of a sense of identity with Wales. She attended Hereford School of Art, but writing soon displaced art as her primary work. In addition to Country Dance (1932), her novels include The Wooden Doctor (1933), Turf or Stone(1934) and Creed (1936). She also wrote numerous articles and short stories, and two collections of poetry, Poems from Obscurity(1947) and A Candle Ahead (1956). Her Autobiography was published in 1943 and A Ray of Darkness, an account of her experience of epilepsy, appeared in 1952. She died in 1958.
