Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury, the “queen of inspirational fiction” (Time), is acclaimed for her poignant, uplifting novels. Once the perfect couple, John and Abby have drifted apart. Now—after 21 years of love, loss, and laughter—they’ve chosen divorce. When they gather their three children to break the news, their daughter joyfully announces her engagement. Determined not to ruin her happiness, Abby and John put their plans on hold. Yet one question lingers: Is it possible to rekindle a love that’s grown cold?

A Time to Dance taught me new steps

Karen Kingsbury's "A Time to Dance" is a beautiful picture of hope for struggling marriages and families. Each character is going through something that just about every reader can relate to. This is the third time I've read (now listened to) this book because I get much hope from the story for my marriage. It is a timeless novel and makes a wonderful gift for an anniversary or wedding. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful

This was a well read wonderful book. I would recommend it to all. People who have been married for years really need to listen to it. It reminded me so much of my own life and marriage to a football coach. 43 years and still going strong.

should be abridged, way too wordy

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, very repetitive. I have read many of her books and have enjoyed them. When I read I don't read every word. With the audible, you have no choice. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it much more if I had read it.

Decent storyline

I was excited to "read" something from this author because I have a kid's book of hers I love. The storyline in this book was good but moo surprises. The book did drag out a little bit too much for me though. Several chapters could have been easily eliminated as they didn't add much to the story.

Good read

I love these love stories, but I kept finding myself say "Abby, how dumb are you?" Her thoughts seemed contradictory at times, and so I think overall, I liked the performance and of course the ending.
