A Time to Dance by Karen Kingsbury
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Thomas Nielsons BookSneeze program. Overall I enjoyed the book, but it also had some drawbacks. It is the story of a couple that have been married for over twenty years and have grown apart. They still love each other, but don't know how to come back together. The idea was interesting, and I enjoyed the characters. I felt like the author kept saying over and over how they still loved each other, but it was to late. Several times the husband and wife make it clear that they don't really want to get divorced, but they have already made the decision to do it, and feel like they can't change their minds. It seemed forced. If they really loved each other as much as implied, then they wouldn't have made the decision to divorce in the first place, and if they had then they would be able to take the steps to change their situation. I enjoyed the book, but felt like parts of it were contrived. I would give it a 3 out of 5.
