The Dancing Continues Review by Ken Wyatt In the first volume of her Dancing Through Life series, Patricia M. Robertson introduced us to a cast of characters whose lives highlight challenges to faith in adverse circumstances. In the center of this cast is a young wife, Joy, who is diagnosed with breast cancer. She and her husband Dale struggle with the complications – one of which is that she is pregnant with their third child. By the end of that book, “Dancing on a High Wire,” Joy is cancer-free. That happy outcome is tempered by knowledge that cancer can return. In this sequel – “Still Dancing” – Joy’s cancer returns. She and Dale find themselves in an emotionally and physically exhausting trial by fire. One of them is dying; the other refuses to acknowledge it. Dale’s reticence creates a dilemma for their marriage. How can a wife dying of cancer find comfort if her husband refuses to believe it is killing her? Others enter the picture, creating a circle of friends and family members who struggle with their own needs as Joy’s takes center stage. In her story-telling, Robertson draws on wide experience ministering in the lives of people with physical and spiritual needs. If her story does not end with a “happily ever after” conclusion, it is because life so often is like that. So her book is both therapeutic and helpful. It is not stretching the point to suggest that all of us either have had, or will have, someone close to us who wades through these very issues. And this story showcases some of the helpful and unhelpful ways to deal, not just with cancer, but with other divisive and destructive family issues. Our own family is walking through an extended cancer battle as I write this. So there were several points in the book that provoked deep emotional responses. I suspect you will find the same to be true in your own reading of “Still Dancing”.
