Overview

Never Ending Dance follows Catherine Cannon's quest for the answer to one question. Will I dance till death? Born in Missouri in the 1970's, Catherine learned how to run, how to leave everything and everyone behind before the age of five. A long-time Department of Defense employee, she has risen up the civilian chain, but has always kept her private life secret, just as she was taught to do as a young child. Until, at the age of thirty-two, that all changed. Catherine, tired of a lifetime obsessing over every twitch or stumble, decides to go through the rigorous steps of genetic testing to see if she carries the debilitating, deadly Huntington's gene. The hardest part of the testing process is that Catherine must open up to a psychologist in order to be assessed for suicide risk. Distant from her family and having recently dumped her boyfriend, Catherine only has a few friends to help her get through the ordeal, until the striking Colonel Jake Rivers makes a sudden appearance in her office. Jake makes Catherine want for something she has never had ... a man that loves her, for who she is. Unfortunately, secrecy is a habit she just can't seem to break and it may end her relationship with him before it even gets started. Electing to keep both her past boyfriend-turned stalker and budding relationship with Jake a secret, she chooses to not disclose them to her psychologist, and focuses strictly on discussing the relationship with her dysfunctional family. Her therapy sessions are going well, until Catherine's world is turned upside down when she is forced to face her demons and return to the small town of Morton, Texas. A gritty, dark look at living with Huntington's disease, poverty and pain, the humor fused throughout makes Never Ending Dance an emotional rollercoaster ride. Catherine Cannon's struggles, triumphs and sheer will to survive, will have readers cheering her on until the bitter end.

    Never Ending Dance follows Catherine as she deals with her past in order to move forward and be able to live life. Love the author's wit and compassion in dealing with a sensitive subject.
