Beth Brinkmann isn’t a little girl anymore, but not quite a young woman. Raised in a good home in a comfortable little southern town, she realizes she has a good life. But there are growing pains. Some are small, like trying to adapt to a new junior high. Others are deeply moving, such as watching the mother of a close friend suffer from multiple sclerosis. Beth, however, has her dad’s moxie. As their bond deepens, Beth provides him with crucial insight into his relationship with his father, a most difficult man.
Beautifully-written and heartfelt, The Dance Between is Valerie Winn’s welcome and poignant return to Mimosa, Mississippi, and a coming-of-age story that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the final page. Sing along with Beth as she learns what true compassion is in the face of great difficulty, and dance with her on every step of her timeless journey.
