Publisher's Summary

During the 1970s, Verdi’s relationship with street-smart Johnson leads her to heroin and the brink of destruction. Rescued by a conservative professor willing to give up everything for her, she lives a quiet, comfortable life for 20 years--until Johnson returns to re-ignite old passions. Pulled uncontrollably toward the reckless appetites of her youth, Verdi struggles to understand her desires and to decide where she wants life to take her next. Best-selling author Diane McKinney-Whetstone fills this lush, lyrical novel with the steamy intensity of great jazz music. Myra Lucretia Taylor adds a rich, rhythmic voice to Verdi’s dangerous, intoxicating, and utterly unforgettable dance of self-discovery.

    "Entertaining"
    Where does Blues Dancing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not the best nor the worse. Different, interesting...


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Pretty riviting, i liked the fact that i could not predict evrything that was going to happen. I am a romantic, so I liked the fact that true love prevailed!


    What about Myra Lucretia Taylor’s performance did you like?

    Her inflections and vocal variety assisted in the level of entertainment.


    Who was the most memorable character of Blues Dancing and why?

    Verdi, because of her turmoil and how she dealt with it all and overcame.


    Any additional comments?

    A different kind of book, varying elements, well written.
