"The Dance," by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley
Love’s recovery starts with a single step . . .
After 27 years of marriage, Marilyn Anderson is tired of playing the role of perfect wife. Her husband Jim is a successful businessman who gives her everything she needs-a beautiful home in an upscale neighborhood, the financial freedom to be a stay-at-home mom, an enviable collection of stuff. Everything, that is, except what really matters: love.
After years of trying to connect with Jim, Marilyn has had enough. She longs to experience some measure of happiness before she’s too old to enjoy it. Needing some time to herself to sort things out, Marilyn leaves to start a new job and take dancing lessons-something she has wanted to do for as long as she can remember.
Shocked to find his wife gone, Jim Anderson must sort through the past to save his marriage. With a little help from an unexpected ally, he begins a campaign to win Marilyn back. What he doesn’t anticipate is how his actions will affect everyone around him-starting with himself.
This is one book which I think both men and women would benefit from reading, as it speaks to both sexes. I was hooked very early on and had to know what was going to happen next. There was a twist in it that I really liked and it had to do with the weather, totally unexpected but appropriate.
I was impressed how this book all came together and how it will apply to the modern day living in which we all experience.
Stars out of 5 : 5 a keeper and a book I think you should all read, as especially for folk who have been married for a while; you tend to not fully appreciate one another day in, day out.
