What Are Reader's Saying.....  

“A Real Love Story” I read A Ring, A Dance, A Second Chance, and found it to be quite an enjoyable book. The characters are well developed, and readers can imagine themselves in a situation like Katie and Taylor's. After decades apart, each had spouses and children, then Katie and Taylor fell in love again. As they re-kindled their romance, they were faced with many life-altering decisions, knowing that the choices they made would affect the lives of their children and their extended families. I felt the emotions of the characters as they worked their way through those very difficult choices. “I recommend this book to readers of all ages.”


“The author is very creative and reaches back into her high school days in bringing out the characters in her story. From Spousal’s death to a new beginning in marrying her high school boyfriend, solving family disgruntles, kids interactions and grandkids, is able to show the marriage brought happiness in the later years. A book you don’t want to put down.”


“A second chance at first love? Why not? Cash has created an incredibly sweet novel about two widowers who get to rekindle their passion which began decades ago. Lovers of all ages will not be disappointed in this southern gem stuffed with unforgettable characters which promises room for a sequel. A delightful page-turner!”


“The author said it was based on her own true story. I admire her for writing her first book when she is an older person. But, in doing this, she fulfilled a dream she had.”


“I truly enjoyed this story of first love that did not last, but was rekindled late in life after both people lost their spouses due to death.”


“A Ring, A Dance, A Second Chance was a great read. You read the description and expect a very sweet and simple love story but the book is so much more. It weaves a tale of many lives that cross paths and trials and tribulations that are so familiar. You will relate to one if not many of the characters.” 

 


BOOK TRAILER


The Story Behind This Book
A. Setting (time period and location): In 1998, in her sixties, Katie lives alone in the same home where she and her husband moved as a couple; they raised a family and planned their retirement and then suddenly her husband died. Katie is upset, and in the midst of frantically hunting her wedding band, the one she’d worn for over thirty years, when out of the blue, Taylor, her high school sweetheart, calls. Taylor tells Katie he is traveling through Georgia, on his way to a family gathering, and stops to call, hoping to locate her. Katie learns Taylor is also widowed and lives in Clermont, NC, about a four-hour drive north Taylor’s voice stirs up memories of 1947 when they fell in love, and fills Katie with fantasies of what might have been. Taylor checks out the territory, questioning Katie if she is married or involved with someone and, though he hangs up abruptly, he intends to pursue Katie, and this time not let other concerns get in his way. Katie worries that if she sees Taylor her settled life will be disrupted. What do you want people to take from your book? First, I hope the reader enjoys the story and feels uplifted. If the reader is an older person and considering changing one’s living situation that involves another person, I hope he/she will learn from the story and think about the advantages and difficulties of marriage later in life, while at the same time understands some of the issues that should be discussed and perhaps resolved with one’s partner before they marry.
