    A hearwarming story

    Perhaps it was caused by almost three decades of a lethargic marriage raising two great adult children that turned Meg Fratano into a watcher, but when the forty-eight year old suburbanite sees her spouse Bob naked with a bimbo, she just wanted to observe. She reflects that she should have wanted to kill them or at least confront them. Instead she finds it curious that Bob is on the bottom and the act seems a lot more intense than their two minute warning that infrequently occurs........................... Meg ponders why voyeurism felt pretty good and concludes that she has lived the last quarter of a century plus living her family¿s dreams, not hers. She begins a trek to first find her desires; she meets wise women on her journey to self awareness including her deceased Aunt Marcia, who left her a Mexican hideaway. Will Meg ever find her solace perhaps in Mexico, in the arms of a man besides cheating Bob or perhaps a foundation benefiting women?....................... Meg is an interesting protagonist struggling with a mid life crisis in which Bob¿s infidelity serves as the catalyst that wakes up ¿Sleeping Beauty¿. As she makes her romp through a world of fully developed females guides, Meg still needs to find where she fits. In spite of the importance of Bob causing the eye opening incident, he is never developed beyond seemingly a reasonably nice person who cheated, but the real motive for his wandering is never fully expanded upon so instead the audience sees a cut out male. Still DANCING NAKED AT THE EDGE OF DAWN is a fine look at middle age reflections on one¿s life................... Harriet Klausner

    A Book EVERY Woman Should Read!!

    I read this book coming off a year of caring for my husband who had been diagnosed with cancer and undergone grueling treatment. After his first clean pet scan, I had a total 'breakdown', where the whole year of being on automatic pilot came to a screeching halt. Needing a couple days to myself, I stayed at my best friend's house, where I came across this book. While my circumstances were totally different, I identified with her, her feelings, her desire to step outside her life, which was now unrecognizable to her. Who had she become and where was the 'real' her? We tend to wear ourselves completely out and put everyone's needs ahead of ours. I believe every woman should read this book, it's about ourselves, who we are, who we want to be. It's very uplifting and causes you to do alot of your own soul searching!!

    The best book I have ever read!!!

    I absolutely loved this book. It was truly inspiring. Perhaps because I am approaching that middle of life era myself... I will definitely pass this one on to all of my friends. It reinforces what we as women need to remind ourselves of continually, Take time for ourselves, we can do anything!

    One of the best

    This was one of the best books I've ever read. I laughed, cried and it made me think. I'm not sure it's a book for all women, but it really struck a chord with me.

    I laughed, I cried

    I found this book awesome, inspiring. Meg is a example of what can be accomplished in your journey through life. No matter what you're told, what others expect you to do, follow your heart, find your true happiness, doing what makes YOU happy, if you're willing to take one step at a time and accept nothing less of yourself to reach that journey of contentment.

    Too descriptive

    There's a story in there somewhere but it's hard to find with the pages and pages of descriptive text. It's kind of a load of cr*p

    A must read for any female!

    I read this book on my way to visit near Savannah, Georgia in contemplation of starting my life over after a 23 year marriage ended. It was a perfect book for me and had me change my view on so many things in my life and where I was at. It opened my eyes to so many things that I had never "been allowed" to discover. I am sharing this with every single female friend I have.

    Excellent!

    This book was given to me by a good friend during a difficult time in my life. Any woman going through a divorce or painful marriage will connect with this book. I loved it and bought extra ones for my friends! It is well written and looks at the plain truth of a marriage falling apart. It was not all "man bashing" but gave a good look at what families and loved ones go through during tough times and how to come out on the other side and really live!
