In one unexpected moment, dancer Vanessa Jordan lost her family, her career, and her future. She blames God for destroying everything that mattered.
Kurt Wagner, an ex-con with a second chance at life and faith, aches to shed his past and see his dream of helping teens become reality.
The former dancer and the ex-con form an unlikely alliance to build River House, a safe haven for kids on the street. But when Kurt’s past threatens his dreams and his life, Vanessa becomes a target as well.
It will take a stubborn love, the grace of God, and one courageous teen to keep the River House dream alive.
“A Hope and Grace-filled story you won’t want to put down!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Brenda Anderson
***Warning*** Don’t pick up DANCE OF GRACE at night because you won’t be able to put it down! I was up until 1:00 am last night finishing Vanessa and Kurt’s story, a romance that isn’t your typical romance.
First of all, the romance develops slowly and naturally and avoids those eye-rolling moments common in so many Christian romances today. Then there’s the atypical hero and heroine. Vanessa’s a former dancer who lost a leg in an auto accident that also killed her younger siblings. She’s trying to shake her guilt and find her purpose in life. Kurt is an on-fire youth minister who’s also an ex-con. Both Vanessa and Kurt have a lot to overcome and struggle escaping self-imposed labels: handicapped, felon, worthless. DANCE OF GRACE is their journey of throwing off those labels and learning to see themselves through God’s eyes, as beloved and forgiven.
This is a hope and grace-filled story that reminds us that while our pasts will shape us, they don’t have to define us.
