Book review: A Time to Dance

Book review: A Time to Dance

I received a copy of the novel A Time to dance by Karen Kingsbury.  This is the first book in the series with John and Abby as the main characters.
From the Authors website:

A Time to Dance

John and Abby were the perfect couple, but they are about to lose it all: On the verge of having an affair, John is no more the man Abby married than she is the long ago girl of his dreams. They make the sad decision to divorce. When they gather their three children to tell them the news, their daughter makes an announcement of her own: she's getting married that summer.

Determined not to ruin their daughter's season of happiness, Abby and John secretly agree to put their divorce plans on hold. But as the wedding nears, they wonder: Is it possible to find joy, after all these years, and perhaps the dance

While reading this book you really did get the feeling that you where part of the couple’s lives.  The story is very real and the emotions that the people in the book feel are very real.  It would be easy for many couples to find themselves in the situation that John and Abby found themselves in after many years of marriage.   While I was reading the book I wanted to tell them to listen to the word of the lord and to say what they really mean out loud and not to be hurtful to protect themselves.  I have learned some lesions from this book to help build a relationship, always talk and make time for each other even when you are busy. I managed to read this book in 2 days and I loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
