A Season to Dance

By Patricia Beal


Ballerina Ana Brassfield has her path to the stage of the Met in New York and her future with fiancé Peter Engberg all figured out--until her first love, renowned German dancer Claus Gert, shows up in Georgia to dance with her and win her back. Thus begins a love story so powerful that it triumphs over suffering and loss, and may even make old dreams come true.

Book Takeaway:

Women sometimes try to fill the God-shaped hole in their hearts with often misguided career and/or romantic pursuits. It doesn't work.

Why the author wrote this book:

I didn't grow up in a Christian home, but for most of my life I believed there had to be some kind of god out there and that being a good person was important. But in 2012, tired and lonely, I decided the notion of a loving god was absurd. There was no loving god, if there was a god at all.
Self-gratification became the chief end of my existence, and I looked behind every door for happiness and satisfaction. I didn't find anything worth keeping though, and at the end of every new pursuit, I was still tired and lonely--and this time surrounded by a darkness and a hopelessness that was brand new and incredibly scary.
Then Jesus passed by, and where I saw the end, He saw the beginning. He fought for me, lifted me out of what had quickly become a murky and joyless existence, and brought me into His perfect light. I was born again in January of 2013, during the writing of this novel. This book, A Season to Dance, is the book that wrote me. I journeyed with Ana and now you can journey with us. Welcome to A Season to Dance.


"This debut novel by author Patricia Beal captivated me with it's beauty. The story of a young lady blossoming in her faith enthralled me and kept me reading until late into the night."
