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 time...to dance?
Review by Evalyn P., October 1, 2013
I read "A Time to Dance" over 12 years ago as I was preparing to marry my husband. I was sitting at an airport waiting for a connecting flight. I read the whole book while I sat there and people poured in and out of the airport and I laughed, cried and lived that book for that moment of time. I was completely oblivious to eveyrone around me as I sat there weeping while I read through the story. My husband and I just celebrated our 12 year wedding anniversay and I was reminded of this book and how much it has stayed with me and a few times really reminded me of God's plan for our marriage and our family. Since then I have read nearly every one of Karen's books and loved them all, but this one still holds a special place in my heart.
