With an ever-growing readership awaiting each book, Luanne Rice demonstrated her bestselling prowess in 2003. Safe Harbor in paperback topped lists from coast-to-coast and August's The Perfect Summer is sure to be the must-have beach read of the season. Now Dance With Me, her most evocative and compelling work to date, confirms that "Rice has an elegant style, a sharp eye, and a real warmth. In her hands families, and their values ... seem worth cherishing" (San Francisco Chronicle). Jane Porter has always been a free spirit, as wild and beautiful as the vast acres of apple orchards in rural Twin Rivers Valley, Rhode Island--the town that is forever etched upon her heart. Now, fourteen years after she left it behind, Jane is unexpectedly drawn home to her mother and only sister. Dylan Chapman has come back too, shedding the steely exterior he once wore as a New York City police detective in order to follow in the footsteps of his apple-farming father, and escape the memories of the life he once lived. Amid this landscape of loss and renewal, of families struggling to find their way back together with an innocent young girl as their lodestone, a haunting story about small town secrets and two converging lives will unfold. Dance with Me explores emotional connections at their very core, with acute insights into the lives of mothers and daughters, sisters and lovers that will resonate long after the final page is turned.
