The 1980's -- History??
The 1980's was a big decade for me. I was in high school and early college. I had gotten married and bought my first home. The 1980's music, current events, and fashions remain with me today. But is it history??
I love that everything comes around again. Young adults are finding the early punk rock music and big bands of the 80's and falling in love. The bright colors and popped collars are starting to come back as well. But I wouldn't call it history. It's past... but history is of a time before my generation, before my parents generation and probably before my grandparents generation. What do you think?
Grea Warner has a wonderful story set in the 1980's. The Dance will release April 25th and is set in those magical years. Her characters are facing big changes, first jobs and a first love. So be sure to preorder a copy for yourself, whether the 1980's are a part of your history or not!
Stepping onto the ice was frightening. Doing so required trust … and not just that of her feet. It also involved Cate’s head and heart. Trusting meant she had to forget what happened in the past.
At twenty-two years old, Cate Lentz is starting to understand Noah’s comparison of skating to a dance. The same, she realizes, can be said about life itself. You have to release the walls surrounding you in order to feel light and free. You also need the right partner. With the NHL rookie at her side, Cate is beginning to see a new and exciting life-canvas in front of her—similar to the paintings she creates in her art studio.
But as smooth as ice is, everyone tumbles and falls sometimes. When her ex, Leo, makes a reappearance in Cate’s life, his mental instability creates such turmoil and heartache that it’s hard for her to stand back up. Can she find a way to dance again after tragedy strikes?
Pulling at heartstrings and dealing with realistic issues, The Dance is a gripping tale that travels the reader back to the year 1980. This emotional story will leave you with a true appreciation for being both independently strong but also grateful for those who are by your side … no matter what.
