Book Review: A Time to Dance

A Time to Dance
Karen Kingsbury
In this novel, Karen Kingsbury introduces the reader to Abby and John Reynolds and their family. Married for almost 22 years, Abby and John find themselves at a place where they’ve lost sight of who they are as a couple and feel they have fallen out of love with one another; the ins and outs of daily life have led them to become two individuals with little time to focus on their relationship with each other. All communication breaks down between then and both feel that divorce is imminent and the only option. Through conversations with God and a series of divine interventions, the couple realizes that love is a choice, not a feeling.

I really enjoyed reading this book; it provides a great portrayal of what love in a marriage should really look like and how the struggles of everyday life can affect us. This book not only gives the reader the story of marriage in trouble, but provides them with an insight to the inner turmoil the characters face. There were times I just wanted to reach into the book and slap the characters because it seemed they just kept choosing to go their own way and not listen to what God was speaking to their life! This really made me stop and think about the choices we have to make in our lives to protect the covenant of our marriages. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is married, ever thinking about getting married, or just likes a good story.
