Great book from a great author. The many typos and spacing errors in this format was distracting to this teacher though. I have never had this problem with a Kindle book before.

A story that many people who have been married for several years may be able to relate to. A busy life with family and careers. An easy read that was enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
Karen Kingsbury's A Time to Dance is the story of a husband and wife who have been married for twenty-or-so years and now their marriage, which all their friends and family idealise, is falling apart. They are about to announce their divorce when their daughter gets engaged. After putting their own announcement on hold until after the wedding, Abby and John grow further and further apart while hiding behind the facade of happily married parents-of-the-bride.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, but I did think the disintegration of the marriage was rather drawn out. The use of flashbacks seemed a bit excessive. I think more of the story was told in flashbacks than in the present! But I really enjoyed the stories told in the flashbacks. The dialogue was mostly realistic, which was great! Most of the characters were well written. I know girls like Nicole, women like Abby. But my favourite character in the book is definitely Jo Harter. I could hear and see that woman in every scene she was in. Picture the character of Olive from Pushing Daisies, add a love of fishing, and that's Jo.

One thing that surprised me is the level of physical passion that was portrayed in a Christian book. But it's been a while since I've read Christian romance.

If you read this book, you must read the Author's Note at the end. In my opinion, that is the best part of this book.

While reading this book you really did get the feeling that you where part of the couple's lives. The story is very real and the emotions that the people in the book feel are very real. It would be easy for many couples to find themselves in the situation that John and Abby found themselves in after many years of marriage. While I was reading the book I wanted to tell them to listen to the word of the lord and to say what they really mean out loud and not to be hurtful to protect themselves. I have learned some lesions from this book to help build a relationship, always talk and make time for each other even when you are busy. I managed to read this book in 2 days and I loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

This book was not bad, I have to say however, that it was just that... not bad but not great. I didn't like the fact that they fought so much, ya there are disagreements in marriages but does it have to get to the point where two people that said they loved each other at one point in their lives, can barely stand the sight of each other at another? I did like however the fact that this book shows and teaches you how easily one can fall into temptation even when you don't think it's one to begin with. A good lesson is to be learned from this book.

I have yet to find a book of Kingsbury that makes me want to read ALL her books. I've read 4 thus far and have about 5 others waiting to be read and I'm still not a real fan. Maybe it's her style of writing or maybe it's because I've first read books from other authors and really liked their writing style and hers is not the same. So if you have enjoyed other books from Kingsbury then you will like this one too.

This was, hands down, the best book I have ever read! I love the way John and Abby's life is so real. The flashbacks to their past is very touching and makes you realize how possible this is for everyone's relationships. Karen Kingsburg is a great author which is shown in many of her books. Enjoy!

It's extremely hard for me to find a book that really catches my attention and that I can focus on. I have never heard of this book before when I went to the library but I saw it on the shelf, read the cover, and decided to read it. Well let me tell you, I read the whole entire book in one day and I loved it! I recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
