Title: A Season To Dance

Author: Patricia Beal

Publisher:  Bling! Romance

Release Date:  May 9, 2017

Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Fiction

Ballerina Ana Brassfield has her path to the stage of the Met in New York and her future with fiancé Peter Engberg all figured out—until her first love, renowned German dancer Claus Gert, shows up in Georgia to dance with her and win her back. Claus kisses her after a rehearsal, a kiss Peter witnesses from the darkened audience. Convinced a kiss between Claus and Ana is more than a one-time mistake, Peter breaks off his engagement with Ana. Rejected by Peter, and knowing Claus is dancing at the Met soon, Ana decides to repave her path to her dream. With her 2002 Thunderbird and Baryshnikov, an old dog crippled by arthritis, she moves to Germany to be with Claus. But the ghost of his late wife, Ana’s own memories of Peter, and the pressure of earning a spot in a large ballet company prove to be a high price for a shot at success.

My Review:

When I first started this book it took me a little while to get into the story. It didn’t take long for me to get caught up in the story. This is a wonderful story of a girl’s journey to Christ. I don’t often read the author notes but I’m glad I did. It added a depth to the story. The character’s were believable and relatable. I like how the the character’s grew in a realistic manner. I got a glimpse into the heart of the author and the truths she wanted to share.  I thought it was a well written story. I’m not a dancer so some of the dance terms were unfamilier to me. This story gave me a glimpse into the life of a ballerina. I’ve always liked dancing but this gave me a new appreciation for ballet.

I recommend this book to family and friends.

I received this book as a review book from Bling! Publisher for my honest review.
