Book Review: The Dance by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley


Wow. Just wow. This book was awesome. It is set in modern times and is about a couple is in trouble with their marriage. The signs were there, but the husband missed out on recognizing them until too late.

Now normally I’m not very keen on books written by men because they seem to lack a certain amount of interest in their writing. This book was not the case. In fact, it wasn’t until I’m sitting here writing the review that I realize it was two men. But really, that doesn’t matter.

The story, as mentioned above, is about Marilyn and Jim Anderson. Married for 27 years, many people view them as the perfect family. Jim certainly does. They have all the right friends, going to the right church, with the right amount of societal presence. However, Marilyn isn’t happy and hasn’t been for years. Feeling unloved she has finally reached a point where enough is enough. So she leaves Jim, and strikes out doing things she has always wanted to do. Get a job and take a dance class.

The story weaves back and forth between Marilyn and Jim, providing relationship guidance along the way which are beneficial not only for the characters in the book, but very useful for those of us in a relationship currently. The story brought tears to my eyes and found that I absolutely loved the story and the overall message it brought forth throughout and to the end.

I downloaded this book from Amazon for my kindle and am so glad that I chose it.
