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.

Alright, this is a book about marriage. I'm a teenager. I've never been married, engaged. I haven't even been alive for as long as this couple has been married. But it didn't matter. This book was so engaging and good, I couldn't put it down! It doesn't matter how old you are, or your experiences. This book is so romantic, and true to life. And it's gripping! You have to read the whole thing to see what happens. I highly recommend that anybody read this book! And it's the first in a series, so you're going to want to read the next ones, too!

"The light turned green. Marilyn gently applied pressure to the gas pedal. "I have to do this." Tears flowed down her face, but she refused to turn the car around. To silence the guilt that had been hammering her all day, she blurted out, "God, I know you understand me. Even if no one else does, I know you do."
