About the Author
Kiran Millwood Hargrave is the author of The Mercies.

"If some prose sings, Kiran Millwood Hargrave's truly dances. Although set in the early sixteenth century, The Dance Tree addresses issues of the utmost importance today--the subjection of women, class inequality, the dangers of religious fundamentalism. Ultimately, however, the book's wisdom, compassion, and beauty transcend historical boundaries: this is a timeless novel." -- Hernan Diaz, author of In the Distance and Trust

"Some historical novels don't just describe the past, they transport you there. ... I absolutely loved this exceptionally beautiful portrait of women from the past, told in the most spellbinding prose." -- Elodie Harper, author of The Wolf Den

"The Dance Tree hums with intrigue, grief and rebellion, oozes tenderness and love. Fierce as Lisbet's bees, delicious as honey. A raw, intoxicating novel." -- Joanne Burn, author of The Hemlock Cure

"Kiran Millwood Hargrave has a masterly ability to summon the past to the page. The Dance Tree vibrates with urgency; its vivid, compassionate evocation of women and their desires in a time of patriarchal control and mass hysteria is a timely reminder of how far we have come, and how far we have to go." -- Hannah Kent, author of Devotion and The Good People

"The Dance Tree is a feat of tenderness and strength. Each page of Hargrave's luminous prose reminded me of candles in a cathedral. Here is something defiantly bright amidst all the darkness. Here is a tale not only rich with history, but hallowed in its hope and haunting in its grief. Extraordinary." -- Roshani Chokshi, New York Times-bestselling author of The Last Tale of the Flower Bride

"An intriguing, haunting novel pulsing with raw, beautiful emotion. Kiran Millwood-Hargrave effortlessly intertwines the stories of women tenderly and sympathetically, creating a novel in which female courage and resilience shines brightly against a brilliantly evoked backdrop of claustrophobic horror." -- Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne

"Exceptionally brilliant. Immersive, sensual, compelling and totally convincing. Accessible, ambitious, The Dance Tree deserves to win prizes." -- Marian Keyes, author of Again, Rache

"The Dance Tree is, simply put, a stunning piece of writing. There is so much pain and grief and loss in it, yet in the end, it all comes back to the redemptive power of love. Sensual, gripping, moving." -- Louise O'Neill, bestselling author of Idol
