Dancing with the sun:xx 850.jpgKay Bratt’s New Outstanding Book, About Healing, Forgiveness, & Survival–Coming 11/27/18

 

Dancing With The Sun is a book to savor, remember and read again.  The story is heartfelt, beautifully written, and emotionally moving. 

Sadie suffered from empty nest syndrome and a failing marriage.  She also stopped truly living life the day her son Jacob died. And, although Sadie loved her adoptive daughter, Lauren, Sadie’s buried grief over her lost son, clouded that relationship. When her daughter, Lauren, traveled across the country to go to college, Sadie worked extra shifts to bury her loneliness. Tom, Sadie’s husband, spent less time at home than ever before. He worked long hours at the office, and often left for weekend trips, alone.

When many of Tom’s belongings and his favorite slippers went missing from the house, Sadie figured that her husband had found someone else. She didn’t blame him really. It was just another painful loss for her to bear. Sadie decided to visit her daughter in California. She wanted to break the news to Lauren gently so that when the changes occurred in the family, it wouldn’t be a complete surprise to Lauren. 

Although Sadie wasn’t keen on hiking in Yosemite National Park, she allowed  Lauren to lead the way. It was while they were lost in the wilderness that Sadie faced her unresolved grief, failures, and regrets; and found forgiveness and healing, for her soul. 

Kay Bratt brought the book alive for me with vivid wilderness scenes, rich character development, and raw emotion. I loved every page of this heartwrenching, compelling and touching novel.

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Bio  (from author’s page on Amazon)

Kay Bratt is the author of eleven full-length novels and two children’s books. Her writing became her solace and support while she navigated a tumultuous childhood, followed by a decade of abuse as an adult. After working her way through the hard years, Kay came out a survivor and a pursuer of peace–and finally found the courage to share her stories. A wise man once told her to “write what you know,” which resulted in Kay’s pet project and her bestselling series, The Tales of the Scavenger’s Daughters.
