There is nothing better than a redemptive love story where you'll find yourself cheering on the characters to get to a happy ending. Well that's just the hope of experienced writers Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley in their latest novel The Dance.
Meet Marilyn Anderson, married for 27 years and feeling the pressure of playing the perfect wife. Meet Jim, her husband an archetypal succesful business man who gives her everything she could possible want and more but yet there's something missing in this 'perfect' picture and that's the most important thing of all - love.
Setting up a story destined to be an emotional rollercoaster, tag-team Walsh and Smalley take their own professional experience as church leaders and relationship experts coupled with writing skills to create a novel well worth a read.
Centred on the themes of restoration as a couple take the journey to rebuild their marriage, The Dance is written with realism and develops the characters so much so you'll feel like they could be your neighbours as you will them on to rekindle the fire and bring back their long lost love. If you loved the storyline of bestselling film Fireproof then The Dance will be right up your street. A 'will-they-won't-they' novel of family relationships and the faith that ultimately binds them together, perfect for curling up on the couch to or relaxing by a pool, wherever you find yourself The Dance is the perfect accompaniment.
