Publisher's Summary

Born in the South of India during a storm that destroys her village, Parvati is immediately recognized as a child with mystical abilities. As Parvati grows she feels compelled to dance as if music is a part of her body. But whenever she does, magical things happen. Regarded with fear and suspicion by the rest of the village, Parvati and her mother have a hard life until the day a master of classical dance comes to see her and offers her a chance to study with him.

After years of sacrifice, Parvati is on the verge of realizing all of her dreams when she meets a young man born on the same day as she. He is someone who has magical abilities of his own. Now, for the first time, Parvati questions what her true destiny is. Suzanne Fisher Staples, author of Shabanu and Haveli has created a lyrical novel steeped in the traditions and customs of India. Christina Moore provides the perfect voice for Parvati, a spirited and dedicated heroine.

An old favorite

I listened to this book when I was a child and remembered it so vividly that when I got my audible account I found it and added it to my wishlist immediately. I love almost anything narrated by Christina Moore. if you like her voice I would check out the young wizard series. I'm pretty sure the first time I listened to this book I found it in the children's section in the library, but it doesn't read like a children's story. It's very serious and full of rich cultural detail.
