About the Author

Sarah Dass was born in Trinidad but has lived in Tobago since she was two years old. A graduate of University College London, she works as an office administrator by day and writes stories about the Caribbean by night. When she's not writing, she's reading or taking walks with her dachshund, Stella. Sarah is also the author of Where the Rhythm Takes You, a reimagining of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Reviews

"Inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion, Dass interweaves the allure of the source material with the warm tropical winds and scents of Tobago. Readers, even those unfamiliar with Austen's work, will appreciate this cast of characters with believable motivations and fleshed-out ideas as they realize what they want and embrace second chances for love and for new adventures." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"What a delightful debut! It's like the perfect island vacation: breezy, warm, romantic, lots of soul searching, and full to the brim with love." -- Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author

"Where the Rhythm Takes You is a literary breath of fresh air! An Austen remix filled with a vibrant cast of characters against the lush backdrop of the small island of Tobago, readers will root for Reyna as she navigates grief, dreams big, and falls in love all to the tune of sweet soca rhythms." -- Ibi Zoboi, New York Times Bestselling Author of Pride

"Reyna's voice rings clearly from the very first page, painting a beautiful and heart-wrenching picture full of grief, hope, and love. Readers will root Reyna on through it all, wishing for a future for her that's just as beautiful as Tobago. Where the Rhythm Takes You sparkles brightly like the Caribbean Sea. Get ready to dive in!" -- Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite, authors of One of the Good Ones

"A love story with classic beats and a unique rhythm." -- Kirkus Reviews
