Since their fathers death, Grace and Clementine have been struggling to get their mother to leave her bedroom. With the house needing vital repairs and almost crumbling around them, the sisters seem to be raising themselves. Grace, spends her days working at the local library and Clementine is keen for a ballet career on the grandest of stages. In that moment they both make a promise: to one day restore their fortunes and family name. However, will this promise prove too costly for the sisters when it comes to choosing their family over true love?

Author of The Dancer's Promise, Olivia Horrox, studied English Literature and Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, and wrote her dissertation on post-WW1 societal changes in The Great Gatsby, which has inspired her own writing. She lives in London with her husband and a very cantankerous cat called Coco. Beautiful Little Fools was Olivia’s debut historical fiction novel, which published in September 2022. The Dancer's Promise is her second novel.

For the Easypress production team, working alongside Embla Books to produce The Dancer's Promise was a pleasure. Through using our software Atomik eStylist (AeS), we were able to ensure that both the print-ready pdf and the eBooks were constantly styled. Throughout all stages of the production process, our publishing platform Atomik ePublisher (AeP) was crucial. From creating first proofs to final files, AeP ensured the production team were able to store and organise the content efficiently.
