Welcome to A Season to Dance Tour

About the book:                                                                   

Ballerina Ana Brassfield has her path to the stage of the Met in New York and her future with fiancé Peter Engberg all figured out—until her first love, renowned German dancer Claus Gert, shows up in Georgia to dance with her and win her back. Claus kisses her after a rehearsal, a kiss Peter witnesses from the darkened audience. Convinced a kiss between Claus and Ana is more than a one-time mistake, Peter breaks off his engagement with Ana. Rejected by Peter, and knowing Claus is dancing at the Met soon, Ana decides to repave her path to her dream. With her 2002 Thunderbird and Baryshnikov, an old dog crippled by arthritis, she moves to Germany to be with Claus. But the ghost of his late wife, Ana’s own memories of Peter, and the pressure of earning a spot in a large ballet company prove to be a high price for a shot at success.

My Thoughts:

Ms. Beal takes the artistry of ballet, unites it with the redemptive power of Christ's mercy and grace providing beauty rising from the ashes story. Ms. Beal does not shy away from the romantic side of the story. Ballet holds, and looks between the dancers will leave you breathless. The story, and characters are real and honest. The struggle of belief is one that we all have struggled with at one time or another.
I had no idea what to expect from this book, other than it had to do with ballet, I enjoyed it immensely and it will definitely be on my top reads of 2017.
I'm a huge fan of debut authors, and Ms. Beal is definitely one I will watch.
