Nadine by John Steinberg Blog Tour! @rararesources @SteinbergStory

Nadine
London 1974 – and Peter Greenberg is riding high. Thanks to his magic touch, every play he puts on in Theatreland is a hit and the money is rolling in. The young man’s empire feels secure – but then everything changes. One evening, he calls in to see a rival’s musical and falls head over heels in love.

The beautiful Paris-born dancer who catches his eye is Nadine – a major star in the making. Like Greenberg, the young dancer too is in love – but with someone else. The eternal triangle is complicated by the birth of a child, and by tragic secrets that go back before World War Two; slowly, those secrets reveal themselves in a drama that out-performs anything on the West End stage or Broadway.

Nadine is a poignant story of unrequited love, a love that will one day be returned – and in a most unexpected way…

INTRO
Nadine, a beautiful young French dancer has been dumped by her lover, ruthless opportunist, Charles Langley, who has gone back to his wife before she has a chance of telling him that she is pregnant.
Broken hearted, Nadine puts her blossoming career on hold while she returns to her parents’ home in Paris to have their child. Thinking that their relationship is over, she doesn’t anticipate that Charles will come looking for her unaware that he has a secret agenda to advantage of her fragile mental state to secure the prime position in the Aristocratic family he’d married into.
 EXTRACT
Nadine stood transfixed, staring at the man who had caused so much turmoil in her life. There had been no contact between Charles and her for months, and for him to suddenly turn up at her parents’ apartment without any advance warning was frankly surreal.
‘Maman, this is—’
‘We’ve already been introduced, my darling,’ her mother said, a smile lighting up her face. Irène seemed to have been charmed by the visitor. ‘Now I think it’s best that I leave you two alone. I’m sure that you must have a great deal to talk about.’
Irène then patted her gleaming blonde hair and got up and left the room.
When Charles came towards her, Nadine was lost for words. She could still recall the feeling of numbness the night when his car had sped away, the night he’d said that their relationship was over. She glanced again at the armchair where he had been sitting and recognised the envelope containing the tests that had confirmed her pregnancy.
‘What did you say to my mother?’ she demanded, sounding agitated.
‘Just that our son has a father,’ Charles replied, with an uncharacteristic display of emotion. ‘Why didn’t you tell me about the baby, instead of rushing off to Paris like that?’ he asked softly.
‘What was I supposed to do? You finished with me before I had an opportunity to tell you. Anyway, if you remember, you’re married. Why would you have wanted the complications of a child?
