Veteran romance writer Kingsbury also takes a thoughtful turn in A Time to Dance, a morality tale about the staying power of love in marriage. Abby Reynolds, wife of a high-school football coach in a small Illinois town, suspects her husband, John, of having an affair. But the true reason their marriage is about to crash is simply the strain of years: arguments unresolved, dreams deferred, and never enough money. Abby's own daughter and, of course, a renewed faith, make Abby (and John) think twice about divorcing in what amounts to Kingsbury's tribute to married love. John Mort

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.
Note: My copy of this book was provided free from [...] in exchange for an honest review. The opinions noted are mine alone.
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.
