Back Cover Description:
An unvarnished portrait of a marriage that is both ordinary and extraordinary, Dancing on Broken Glass takes readers on an unforgettable journey of the heart.
Lucy Houston and Mickey Chandler probably shouldn’t have fallen in love, let alone gotten married. They’re both plagued with faulty genes—he has bipolar disorder; she, a ravaging family history of breast cancer. But when their paths cross on the night of Lucy’s twenty-first birthday, sparks fly, and there’s no denying their chemistry.
Cautious every step of the way, they are determined to make their relationship work—and they put their commitment in writing. Mickey will take his medication. Lucy won’t blame him for what is beyond his control. He promises honesty. She promises patience. Like any marriage, there are good days and bad days—and some very bad days. In dealing with their unique challenges, they make the heartbreaking decision not to have children. But when Lucy shows up for a routine physical just shy of their eleventh anniversary, she gets an impossible surprise that changes everything. Everything. Suddenly, all their rules are thrown out the window, and the two of them must redefine what love really is.
Dancing on Broken Glass, by KA Hancock, is a story about an unconventional love put through a rollercoaster life. While reading you feel connected to the characters and all that happens to them. You learn what it is like to love, to lose, and to come through that loss to love again – in a very different way. The characters are dynamic and the book is an emotional read. It was hard to put down. The story took turns, both unexpected and expected, but never lost its ability to capture you and pull you in. If you aren’t prepared for a little emotional heartache, this isn’t for you… otherwise, I would highly suggest this book.
5 out of 5 stars.
