A Candle for St. Jude

(1948)
A novel by

 
 
Madame Holbein, the aging mistress of a small London ballet school, faces a crisis when she realizes that the program for the season, marking her Jubilee, lacks anything original or noteworthy. Madame, stubborn and proud, watches as events begin to unfold which may crown her anniversary season with triumph. Involved in the drama is a young dancer/choreographer with a chip on her shoulder, a brilliant but sodden set designer, Madame's long-suffering sister-in-law, and two of Madame's favorite young former students, who can make or break the ballet program. A satisfying story, rich with character and detail.
