I won this book from the Member Giveaways on LibraryThing.

What a great book this was! This book deals with reincarnation and how lives are intertwined through the ages.

The story begins with Elliot, a graphic designer, who recently lost his parents and brother to an accident. His brother's wife, Rhonda, and their 5 year old daughter, Gee, comes to live with Elliot, as she has run out of money and needed a place to stay. Gee bonds with Elliot immediately. Eventually, Gee starts talking about place

I won this book from Librarything in exchange for an honest review.

There are many wonderful things about this novel. I thought that Gee and Elliot were amazing characters and had multiple layers to them, with strong supporting characters Aunt Marian and Mirra. The overall plot was fascinating and I enjoyed the exploration of people living multiple lives and carrying some of those experiences with them. The tension kept me reading quickly to the end to see what would happen. It was also well writ

I was gifted this novel by the author in early 2012. At that time I had no idea that a tragedy would befall me (the very unexpected loss of my beloved husband). I was in shock for a long time and have been piecing my life together ever since. Ironically, and very much unintentionally and unbeknownst to me, the last 3 novels I have read (including this one) have included topics that have very much helped me in my grief and coming to grips with life and death. This novel most especially! Because m ...more

I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for reading and reviewing it.

Generally, reincarnation is not a topic that I read much about, especially not fiction. However, when I saw the blurb for James Thomas’ To Dance Again, it caught my attention; enough that I wanted to give it a try.

Elliott Shields has lost his parents and brother in an accident, and now his sister-in-law Rhonda and five year old niece Gee have come to live with him. Gee initially seems precocious, but the more Elliott

I was sent a copy of To Dance Again for review, unfortunately it took me a little longer than planned to get it read but it was well worth it. James Thomas has weaved an insightful tale of reincarnation, loss, love and revenge into a story full of twists and turns.

The main character, Gee, is just a wee girl of 5 with the experiences of past lives resurfacing after she moves in with her uncle. Thomas has done a wonderful job of keeping the little girl Gee real, while mixing in the mannerisms, kno

The story starts with the murder of a belly dancer. Her life, the reason for the murder, and the killer are all a mystery to the reader.
Then we come to Elliot Shields and his 5 and a half year old niece, Gee. Gee remembers things that no child could have lived or even know about. Elliot soon learns about past lives experience and reincarnation.
Though Gee's memories and Elliot's help in the investigation, we learn about Sherri Williams. The belly dancer who Gee used to be. Her life, her killer, a

Received a free copy of book, and was pleasantly surprised by the how the story unfolds, but creates a wonderfully spun story of loss, love, mystery and pain.

Sherri, a dancer who gets killed on night after work.

Elliot, a guy who lives in the country and recently lost his parents and brother in a car accident.

Rhonda & Gee, wife of Elliot's deceased brother and neice (5 years old).

Throw in a little karma and mystery and this story gets you hooked as you get to know the little girl and her stor
