Jeanne Brostrom Dancing with a Cowboy is a wonderful getaway into a world of romance, humor, and mystery. Lucy Baumgardner, with her strong work ethic and open mind, takes us on a journey from the city into the country where the secrets and the beauty of the country are presented for all to view - including the smell of the stalls, the determination involved in keeping a ranch fenced, and the strength, both physical and spiritual, that must be included if one is truly to love the country. Country living turns out to be just what this successful city lawyer was destined to embrace. Perhaps her dad who sent her on this trip knew more than what he let on when he arranged to send her into the unknown-clueless to the reality of the ranch experience. What makes Lucy so respectable is her ability to see the humor in her situation and her vibrant response to living. Lucy is a strong willed, independent woman. It would take a strong man to match her character, and Stace turns out to be just the man, possessing a sense of humor and the manliness to lead the dance. Lucy's ability to see the beauty of living wherever life takes her reminds us all that life is subjective, and what we see turns out to be a mirror looking back at us. Through Lucy's experience, this reader is able to enjoy a brief encounter with a time when she believed in romance and accepted that the hardships that come with the challenge - even if those hardships include the odor that can be found in a pig barn - are part of the secrets given to those who truly love the country. Dancing with a Cowboy reminds us that life is full of romance wherever one finds oneself: beauty is all around us. Like Lucy, we have to be open minded enough to see it. Good writing, Sandi Whipple. Not everyone can keep a story going, adding a sense of joy and amusement as the story progresses.
