Many romances are written for twenty and thirty-somethings. Nothing wrong with that—it’s when most of us experience our first love or our forever love. But not always. Keep Dancing celebrates a different kind of sweet romance. Not only is it between two people who are at later stages of their lives, but life-changing disease threatens one of the characters.
The roots of this book run deep. I met my husband when I was fifty. We have an amazing and deep love, one I couldn’t have had in my twenties. Frankly, I had a lot of issues to work through. So I celebrate mature love. It’s different, but it’s not better or worse.
A number of years ago one of my closest friends was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I’ve watched a vibrant woman grow more dependent on others to get through daily life. Her husband has stepped up and it’s been good to see. Last year, I had the honor to help a man with Parkinson’s with his very strong book about his victory to continue living in spite of that disease. A key person in his life is his life, who loves her husband, but not the disease.
So love can triumph in life, no matter what. Will it work for the couple in Keep Dancing? Have you read it yet? Get your copy here.
