Dance Of The Lights

I was immediately drawn to this book because of the alluring cover and intriguing title–the ambiguity of it appealed to my curious side. I wasn’t sure what to expect the story to be about, but I knew I was in for an interesting read. It turned out to be one of the most beautiful, heart-wrenching narratives I’ve ever experienced.

The author’s descriptions are unique and riveting, laced with raw emotion that catapults readers straight into the heads and hearts of each of the characters. We feel all of their emotions – sadness, angst, joy, and loss. Our hearts ache for the young Kevin Riner who learns about life the hard way, Beverly who finally opens herself up to love again, and Frank, who learns that life is better when shared with someone you love. Each of these characters, along with a host of others, have a unique story to tell; yet the author finds a way to entwine all of their experiences together in a remarkable way.

This story had a little bit of everything I search for in a tale: emotion, suspense, murder, and even a bit of court room drama – which I enjoyed. But mostly, it had an almost lyrical story that makes one really take stock of the fragility and value of life.

I whole-heartedly encourage anyone who’s ever lost a loved one to read this book. Whether it’s possible or even believable, or not, for these things to happen; it leaves you with a sense of peace and hope that perhaps they could. I will never forget this story.

    1. I have been lucky enough to have read almost all of Stephen’s books. I have to say that Dancing of the Lights is my favorite and I have read it many times. Read it with a box of tissues. Not only is this book special; they all are.

      1. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the others by Stephen yet, Lendia, but I do plan to soon. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on his work with us! We have a great book tour going on this month. Stick around to win some fabulous prizes!

  1. The moment I saw the cover I knew I wanted to read it. Not common for me as a cover will catch my attention but I want to read a blurb before deciding. After reading your description I knew why. The loss of my daughter. I can’t wait to read this book, and I felt like that the minute I saw the cover. It sounds very real and poignant, sure to run your emotions in all ways. That’s a sign of a good book to me if it can make me feel for the characters. Thank you again Traci, for bringing such a diverse group of authors and books to us, many whom we may have missed with so many out there. It has definitely introduced me to a number of authors who I now follow. I didn’t see a link or giveaway but I’ll check at Amazon first. Thank you again and have a wonderful week! I’ll be ‘seeing you daily’ .
