A Time to Dance
By Karen Kingsbury
Everyone thinks John and Abby Reynolds are the perfect couple but secretly they are about to lose it all. After growing apart over the years and John nearly having an affair, they have decided to divorce. As John and Abby sit their family down to make the announcement their oldest daughter, Nicole, announces she’s engaged and wants to get married on her parent’s anniversary. In the moment John and Abby decide to keep their divorce quiet until after the wedding. Can they still find joy as the wedding approaches?
As the wedding does approach John and Abby are each filled with turmoil, flashing back to when things were good between them along with the struggles they have overcome during their marriage. Every scene, whether present day or flashback, pulls the reader in and offers the ability to feel both John’s and Abby’s pain as they question if they are making the right decision.
Throughout the book there are many whispers from God into their situations and it’s really interesting to see when and how both of them respond. Sometimes they follow the Lord’s leading and sometimes they don’t, just like any normal person.
The biggest down fall to the book is if the reader isn’t completely paying attention or is too caught up in the story, the reader may not realize when the perspectives have switched and may be left a little confused.
I received this book free for review from Thomas Nelson publsihers.
“The music never changes but it’s up to us to keep dancing.”
