The Dance Card: Looking for Love After Divorce

Rate this book
Without a hint of warning, Ann Reichardt's husband betrayed her after thirty years of marriage. He told her he was no longer over her, announced he was leaving and wanted a divorce. The unceremonious and unexpected end of her marriage left her devastated and blindsided, and was a rude awakening. Her dream of eternal marital bliss was over. Instead of hanging her head low, at age 56 Ann jumped into the deep end of the cyberspace dating pool. Her quest to find love after divorce takes her on an exciting journey filled with romance, lust, drama, heartbreak and ultimately self-discovery. Ann nicknames her suitors after different ballroom dances that reflect their personalities and dating styles, including Mr. Slow Dance, the perfect entre into the dating world after a long and monogamous marriage, a conservative dancer who took his time getting to know her; Mr. Jitterbug, who in contrast was high energy, uninhibited, full of improvising, and a high- wire act who was often out of control; Mr. Rumba, sultry and sexy who brought electrifying chemistry to the dance floor; and Mr. Waltz, whose dance moves were slow and deliberate, full of emotion, drama and romance and held the hope of love and commitment. From a full-fledged committed rebound relationship that happened too soon after her divorce, to a tempestuous, sexy on again off again affair where the chemistry was overpowering, to a loving romantic relationship, Ann shares her wide range of experiences that will inspire women-and men-of all ages that there is romance after divorce, if you are willing to look for it.
