A Review of “To Dance Once More”
To Dance Once More
In “To Dance Once More,” Sherri Wilson Johnson masterfully pulls us into the life of Lydia as she reaches the brink of womanhood. Her sisters are content to marry and bear children, but not Lydia. She wants to make a difference in the world! Lydia’s independent spirit is soon challenged by unexpected stirrings of romantic feelings for her brother’s best friend. Can her dreams of making a difference in the world still be realized if she marries? Can she have the best of both worlds?
Even as Lydia revels in these new-found feelings of love, a dark shadow looms. Words shouldn’t be able to change your life, but the words Lydia inadvertently overhears strip her of life’s choices. She must privately bear the burden of knowing she is a pawn in a plan beyond her control. Her life is not her own.
Lydia’s independent spirit rebels. Her faith in God is challenged. How far is she willing to go to change her fate? You will feel her pain. You will feel her struggles. You will agonize with her as she struggles to make the right choice, knowing that in doing so she will put an end to her dreams and an end to her love.
It’s a love story with twists and turns that leave you guessing. It’s a story of challenged faith. It’s a story that’ll make you want to ask when Sherri’s next book is coming out!
