Summary

With Anna-Marie McLemore's signature lush prose, Dark and Deepest Red pairs the forbidding magic of a fairy tale with a modern story of passion and betrayal.

Summer, 1518. A strange sickness sweeps through Strasbourg: women dance in the streets, some until they fall down dead. As rumors of witchcraft spread, suspicion turns toward Lavinia and her family, and Lavinia may have to do the unimaginable to save herself and everyone she loves.

Five centuries later, a pair of red shoes seal to Rosella Oliva's feet, making her dance uncontrollably. They draw her toward a boy who knows the dancing fever's history better than anyone: Emil, whose family was blamed for the fever five hundred years ago. But there's more to what happened in 1518 than even Emil knows, and discovering the truth may decide whether Rosella survives the red shoes.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Stitching together scraps of history with contemporary life and the Hans Christian Andersen tale The Red Shoes, McLemore fashions another gorgeous novel that reminds readers of the ways fairy-tale evils and, more importantly, love have their roots in the real world. Each year for a few days, a glimmer of magic settles over Briar Meadow, and this time it chooses the red shoes famously made by Rosella Oliva's family, making those who wear them bold in life and love. Indeed, Rosella's own pair leads her into the arms of Emil, her childhood friend. But the glimmer also touches Emil's dreams, evoking sights and sounds from five centuries prior when a dancing sickness swept through the area. As the echo of la fièvre de la danse reverberates through Briar Meadow, McLemore relays the tale of the original outbreak, loosely inspired by actual events in sixteenth-century Strasbourg. Here the saga of Lala and Alifair unfolds alongside a heartbreaking need to conceal in order to survive Lala, her Romani heritage; Alifair, his transgender identity; and mutually, their love. These narrative threads are intricately braided together as Emil reconnects with his past and Rosella finds strength in her own dance of defiance. A thoughtful author's note discusses both the fever and the fairy tale, but it's McLemore's well-choreographed story that will dance on in readers' minds.--Julia Smith Copyright 2019 Booklist"
