Publisher's Summary

USA TODAY bestseller from the author of The Mountain Between Us, now a major motion picture!

"When Maggie opened her eyes that New Year's Day some seventeen months ago, I felt like I could see again. The fog lifted off my soul, and for the first time since our son had died and she had gone to sleep—some four months, sixteen days, eighteen hours, and nineteen minutes earlier—I took a breath deep enough to fill both my lungs."

Life began again for Dylan Styles when his beloved wife Maggie awoke from a coma. A coma brought on by the intense two-day labor that resulted in heartbreaking loss. In this poignant love story that is redolent with Southern atmosphere, Dylan and Maggie must come to terms with their past before they can embrace their future.

Hurt of not being what you were born to be

I love all Martin’s books but this one had me crying for days. The hurt of losing a child and the process of fertility treatment is lonely This book opened wounds and longings but more important it made me cry and was healing to a very hidden part of my heart.

Returning

Im a Charles Martin fan. Ive listened to all his books and the last 2 have been disappointing. Especially this one, which I'm returning not finnished. Listened to 17 chapters and I've been bored, my mind wanders and still havent got anywhere. To wordy, to in depth about everything. The narrator is at time to feminine sounding, I just dont like that in a mans voice. Kind is fine, feminine yuk.

ORIGINAL PUBLISH DATE 2006

This book was originally published in 2006, which accounts for the sophomoric writing.  The story is jam-packed with similes, clichés, and/or metaphors. It's funny but these grammar basics are sometimes repeated later on in the story.  It appears that the original 2006 publication was never professionally edited.  I  have enjoyed many of Charles Martins' books but this is not one of them.

Ending is such a hook

The ending leaves you dangling and wanting more to the story. What happens adoption? Pregnancy?

Maggie

I enjoyed this book. So much love between Dylan and Maggie!!! Through their trials there was a lot of action with a few really bad men.

Story of Restoration and Hope

I've read all Charles Martin's book but read the Awakening Series last. This, his first books, are as good as any of his others. The author is masterful at describing personal attributes, the environment and setting and, most of all, gut-wrenching feelings associated with human suffering and the exhilaration that comes with acceptance and renewed hope. the characters will become the reader's friends who often share common pain as well as joy. Knowing Mr. Martin"s faith in God makes all his writing a bonus for readers.

Good story bad narrator

I wish they would’ve had the same narrator as the first book. This guy over dramatizes everything. It’s hard to listen to him. But I like all of the stories by Charles Martin I’ve read so far, so I will keep trying! If all else fails, I’ll return the book and get the hard copy.

Back to Back

My problem may be that I listened to Maggie and Dead Don't Dance back to back and there was a different narrator. I just kind of felt this book was written to fill a contract that was coming up quickly. The storyline is all over the place. I had to back up several times because it changed so much. Was it Maggie's story - in a way. A crime mystery - badly. In the end I just felt the characters I enjoyed so much became different people and the story I had loved was only a prequel because there were characters with the same names. I'm not giving up on Charles Martin, I just was disappointed in an author as great as he is and this book. Don't take my opinion to heart if you are a huge Charles Martin fan, there are some interesting parts and it ends great.

Dead last of the Charles Martin books I'v read

Far, far to wordy. Took 5 to 10 minutes with a lot of flowery words to get to a point. Every page seem to have something awful happening to one of the main characters. I had a hard time finishing it.
