Dancing in the Light by Anita Stansfield. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

"As trials come thick and fast, Wade Morrison finds himself facing devastating loss and a desperate loneliness greater than he ever could have imagined. Thankfully he has a large and loving family, without whose support he could not survive. Ultimately, however, Wade's greatest source of strength comes through his faith and reliance on the Savior's unconditional and atoning love.

Just when it seems that the bottom has fallen out of his world, Wade finds love in the face of loss, trust in a time of personal betrayal-and happiness greater than he had ever hoped to experience again."

This book is next in line after "Timeless Waltz," and "A Time to Dance". It talks about Alex's newly discovered brother Wade and how that happiest time in his life turns quickly into the hardest. Strangely, this was a really great book for me to read. As I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, I could totally relate to Wade's entire world turning upside down with the trials he has to go through. I have turned to my novels in the past month as a way to escape my own life, and this book didn't let me down at all. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It also taught me a few things about testimony and helped me cope with my present situation. Anita Stansfield is well-known for her LDS romance novels, and I appreciated this one just as much as all her other books.
