With her latest novel, Dancing on Glass (B&H Fiction), Pamela Ewen explores one woman’s dreams of love versus illusion. “Having been there to some extent, I know that understanding is the key to [dealing with] manipulative relationships,” says Pamela. “This is not the burning bed. My heroine Amalise Catoir does not have low self esteem. She had a happy childhood. She’s a successful young lawyer and financially independent. And she has a secret.” Hoping readers will come away from this story with a new understanding of what she calls the “double bind”—the danger of manipulative and predatory relationships—Pamela writes a compelling story that leaves readers with plenty of food for thought.
