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.

The Andersons could be so many couples... marriage is hard and it does take the right dance move to keep it moving in the right direction and not stepping on toes. The author did a wonderful job creating characters and issues that happen all the time in a marriage.

I recommend this book to anyone confused, hurt and angry with the way they feel trapped in their relationship. When they find themselves having the same disagreements over and over, with the same predictable results. There's a lot to learn in this story that we all can utilize in our own situations.

Great book but mostly guidance for husbands.
