In GOD DANCED, Mary Lenore Quigley, poet and fiction-writer, turns her talents to a winsome tale of faith and friendship for young readers. Poetry sets the stage for a heartwarming story of two young sisters, Lucille and Ann, whose friendliness and enthusiasm win the hearts of all their neighbors. One neighbor, Mary Jane, is seriously ill. Having abandoned her dream, Mary Jane finds two new reasons to pick up her violin and play again. They´ve come knocking at the door. She only needs to open it. Neither a life-threatening illness nor a physical deformity can keep Mary Jane and her young friend Lucille from pursuing their dreams: to make music and dance. As in most small towns, everyone knows the triumphs and troubles of their neighbors. All are eager to spread the joy and share the sorrow. In the sharing, hearts and dreams are touched. In the touching, hearts are healed and dreams come true. With lively illustrations by Joanna Gibbs, GOD DANCED charms its readers and inspires them to reach beyond themselves . . . and touch a dream.
