Publisher's Summary

The Dance is a book about love, family and friendship, and learning how to dance with life's constant spin.
Dog trainer Jacky Applebaum is focused on one thing - making up for a grave misunderstanding that damaged her relationship with her 15-year-old stepdaughter, Sophie. They are suffocating under the pressure of hurt and guilt. Old wounds begin to heal between them when a spirited beekeeper named Brooke Hastings contracts Jacky to train her overly-protective dog, Bee. A mutual affinity grows instantly between them, an affinity Jacky won't allow herself to embrace. But, the heart knows what it needs. Meanwhile, Brooke hires Sophie as her assistant in the bee apiary. A trust forms, and soon Sophie begins to feel alive again as she comes face-to-face with the many parallels between her and the honeybees she nurtures.
Just as they learn to open up and dance with life again, a hurtful truth reveals itself. Will this truth set them free, or unravel all they've come to learn about life?
