The Dance Giveaway!

Jim Anderson is a successful businessman, and his wife, Marilyn, is the perfect wife. And why wouldn't she be? He gives her everything she needs. That's why Jim never expected to come home one day and find Marilyn gone.
After 27 years of marriage, Marilyn has had enough of feeling unloved and neglected. She wants to experience some measure of happiness before she's too old to enjoy it, even signing up for dance lessons, something Jim would never do. What will it take for Jim to finally become the man Marilyn needs him to be?

Combining the literary talents of bestselling author Dan Walsh and the relationship expertise of bestselling author Gary Smalley, The Dance is the first novel in The Restoration Series. Readers will get caught up in these flawed but sincere members of the Anderson family as they rediscover genuine love and start a transformation that ultimately affects all of them.

Let me tell you blog readers something, This is a MUST read book.
This book is full of emotion and oh what a story, who knew two men could write such a powerful love story.
This book tugged at this old girls heartstrings, I cried at the end I was so happy!
I was so touched by this very moving story that I am giving it to every couple who is going though something big in their relationship. I believe this is a book that will change things for couples for the better.
When Jim started looking for tangible ways to care and serve his wife, I said to myself I can't imagine anyone reading this book and not being changed for the better.
This a 5 star must read. I highly recommend this book.
