The Dance by Dan Walsh & Gary Smalley

Cover Art This is a touching story about a marriage in trouble and about one man's journey to save it.  When Jim's wife Marilyn walks out after twenty-seven years of marriage, he's in shock.  He feels blindsided and angry and worries how this will affect his career and the way people look at him.  Marilyn has everything money can buy, but hasn't felt loved by Jim in a long time.  Nothing she says gets through to him, so she moves out, gets a job, and starts taking dance lessons, two things she's wanted to do for a long time.  Jim meets an unexpected person who will not only open his eyes to how he's treated his wife and children, but just may help him win her back.

I really enjoyed this story that shows it's not too late to save a marriage as long as you're willing to work at it.  I liked seeing how Jim changed throughout the story and the insight he gained as he really scrutinized the reasons for things he said and did.  It was well-written and I liked that we see both of their perspectives.  This is the first book in The Restoration Series.  I'd highly recommend it.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

Available April 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
