Editorial Reviews

Single Titles
DANCING ON GLASS is frightening because it is all too real. Talented Pamela Binnings Ewen chillingly describes character Phillip as an evil predator going from one unsuspecting woman to another, taking what he wants and making them feel that they are precious one moment and unworthy of love the next. His recent prey, Amalise, is trusting and innocent, a perfect target, but when he tires of her she may lose her life completely. Readers become actively engaged in Amalise’s struggles to regain her very existence outside the smothering confines of Phillip’s control. The simile comparing her life, like dancing on shattered glass, is perfectly appropriate. Edgy, scary, riveting; DANCING ON GLASS by powerful Christian author Pamela Binnigs Ewen, compels the reader to keep turning the pages, hoping for a way out and answers to prayers. --(Donna)

"The danger and suspense feels real and exciting…The author uses imagery skillfully, which makes Dancing on Glass a compelling, page-turning read."--(Angie Howatt, 4 stars)
"Set in the historic city of New Orleans in the 70's this story of love, obsession, attempted murder, betrayal and restoration keeps the readers on the edges of their seats."--(Abbie )
Library Thing.com
"From the back of the book, I summed it all up: "What would you do when prayers seem to go unanswered, faith has slipped away, evil stalks, and you find yourself forever dancing on shattered glass?" If you really like a good mystery and romance all in one, then this will be the book for you."
Mom's Bookshelf
"Dancing on Glass is a deftly written, haunting novel on a very difficult subject. I was absorbed despite myself. It's definitely not a lighthearted, uplifting story. Be prepared for frustration and tense moments. If you're looking for something relaxing, this isn't the book for you. But if you enjoy romantic thrillers, storylines that tackle difficult topics like abuse, and don't insist on fairytale endings, you'll enjoy "
--(Kara, Home with Purpose)
Library Journal
Amalise Catoir is a young lawyer on the brink of a promising career when she meets and falls in love with artist Phillip Sharp. Wedded bliss soon turns into a nightmare as Phillip becomes possessive and abusive. VERDICT Ewen's (Secret of the Shroud; The Moon in the Mango Tree) suspense-filled tale displays excellent character development as well as insight into the workings of a sadistic mind. New Orleans circa 1974 comes alive in her capable hands. Recommend it to fans of Sibella Giorello and Lynette Eason.
