The Anniversary Waltz
At their sixtieth anniversary party, Adam Carlson asks his wife, Elizabeth, for their customary waltz. After the dance they gather the family and share their story—a story of love and courage overcoming adversity and thriving in the face of overwhelming odds. It’s the summer of 1946, and Adam has just returned from the war to his home in Reunion, Montana. At a town festival he meets Elizabeth Baxter, a young woman going steady with his former high school rival and now influential banker, Nathan Roberts. When Adam and Elizabeth share a waltz in a deserted pavilion one evening, their feelings begin to grow and they embark on a journey, and a dance, that will last a lifetime. This was a simply fabulous book. I was enchanted by the characters, the setting and the premise. I felt as though these folks could have been my friends. Slide under a quilt, get cozy, open the cover and let the story carry you away. You won't want to put it down until you finish it. Jody My copy was graciously provided by GlassRoad Publications for my honest review.
