Book Summary:

At their sixtieth anniversary party, Adam Carlson asks his wife, Elizabeth, for their customary waltz. After the dance they gather the family and share their story—a story of love and courage overcoming adversity and thriving in the face of overwhelming odds.

It’s the summer of 1946, and Adam has just returned from the war to his home in Reunion, Montana. At a town festival he meets Elizabeth Baxter, a young woman going steady with his former high school rival and now influential banker, Nathan Roberts.

When Adam and Elizabeth share a waltz in a deserted pavilion one evening, their feelings begin to grow and they embark on a journey, and a dance, that will last a lifetime.

This is an awesome book. The story has such depth to it that the story and characters felt very real. Reading it took me back to another time, another era, with trials that were different yet similar to today. I really enjoyed reading this book. And there were some plot twists I didn’t expect. I also really liked the design of the book. I plan to buy my own copy of this book someday.

Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
