Here at the End of the World We Learn to Dance Paperback
by Lloyd Jones
In a cave set back from the ocean, on the coast of New Zealand, Louise and Schmidt hide along with two local boys frightened of being called up to fight in the Great War.
But the sensual rhythm of the tango lessons which Schmidt teaches on that sandy cave floor will have devastating consequences for all of them.
Two generations later, Schmidt's fiery granddaughter Rosa, running an Argentine restaurant, captivates a young man with the same sultry music that inspired seduction and deception so many years before.

Review by paulmorriss
Towards the more literary end of the spectrum, but not too erudite. An interesting story and not at all predictable.
