Review: Then She Danced by Janice Godin

Happy Monday!  Today I bring to you a fantastic book about finding love after suffering something horrible.  This beautifully written book was both entertaining and emotional.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

Everyone in Kathleen’s life thinks she’s crazy when she decides to spend her well-earned summer working in a tiny, dusty attic sorting through old church papers, but the peace and quiet of working alone is exactly what she wants.

She’s back home again and happy, or as happy as anyone who’s left behind a troubled past can be. She has amazing coworkers, a wonderful best friend, a supportive family, and not one single person in her life who knows what she’s been through. So, when Kathleen stumbles across an old French diary written by a battered wife, she connects with the story and Emilie.

Kathleen’s life changes when she meets Grant, a gorgeous local man with a past of his own. Their connection is undeniable, even for her, and proves that second chances are possible if she can just leave her past behind.


Though everyone in Kathleen’s life thinks she’s crazy, Kathleen is finding her way through the summer by working in a dusty attic.  The peace she finds becomes what she’s always needed.  Now that she has found her way home she sees the wonderful friends and family she has but none of them know what truly happened to her.  Soon her life unexpectedly changes and love falls in her lap.  But will she let her past let her push her new future away or will she work through her pain and open herself.

I really love the transformation of this story.  Kathleen’s character truly grows.  The reader will feel the pain that she goes through as the tough decisions she makes alter her future.  I also loved the diary aspect of this story.  It was the real catalyst that made the change happen.  The story itself was multi-dimensional and intense.  It drew me in and really brought out emotions that only a wonderfully written story can.
