The Dance, by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley (My review before the review)

I may have to interrupt this regularly scheduled program to finish Dan and Gary's book, The Dance.
Yes, it's Sunday morning and I thought I had my make-up on, ready for church but no, I couldn't resist another chapter from Dan Walsh's (Word Weaver of Volusia County Group) book that he wrote with none other than Gary Smalley. Well, of course the tears fell and now I am recommending that we all just stop and take a "fiction vacation." Let the world go away and read this book!
I had wondered how Dan was going to intermingle the lessons that Gary wanted to portray in a novel, and I must say he did it in a wonderful way. A way that is making me want to read some of Gary Smalley's books on marriage that I missed along the way.

Of course the picture in my mind of Uncle Henry could only look like Gary and the hunkie dance instructor,(sorry Dan it isn't you:)) well I don't know his name but he was on Dancing With the Stars one season.
I am loving Miss Audrey and finally by page 254, Jim is starting to grow on me. I know that this book will bring healing to many people.

Amazon describes it in this way and I describe it as a must read:

Jim Anderson is a successful businessman, and his wife, Marilyn, is the perfect wife. And why wouldn't she be? He gives her everything she needs. That's why Jim never expected to come home one day and find Marilyn gone.

After 27 years of marriage, Marilyn has had enough of feeling unloved and neglected. She wants to experience some measure of happiness before she's too old to enjoy it, even signing up for dance lessons, something Jim would never do. What will it take for Jim to finally become the man Marilyn needs him to be?

Combining the literary talents of bestselling author Dan Walsh and the relationship expertise of bestselling author Gary Smalley, The Dance is the first novel in The Restoration Series. Readers will get caught up in these flawed but sincere members of the Anderson family as they rediscover genuine love and start a transformation that ultimately affects all of them.
