Are You Comin' to the Dance?
Reader reviewed by Rita Lorraine Hubbard, The Original H.I.R. (Historical Investigative Reporter)
Longing for the good old days? You can re-live them. Just pick up a copy of author Kelly Bennett's new book, Dance, Y'all, Dance, and you can re-claim those wonderful times--and dance the two-step in the process.
Dance, Y'all, Dance, is lovely through-and-through. It tells the story of that long-ago time in America when hard-working members of the community came together on a steamy Saturday night to share a little knee-slapping and foot-stomping with their favorite partners. That time when teen-age boys winked at the girls they liked, and the girls blushed red at the thought of doing the two-step with the boy of their dreams.
Bennett's style is lyrical and romantic, with just enough whimsy to whisk your mind back to yester-year. Terri Murphy's heart-warming illustrations have a bit of a "Norman Rockwell-ish" flavor that give readers that everybody's-welcome-at-the-dance feel. The result: A most unforgettable read.
So go on; hurry back to the good old days of barn-dancing on Saturday nights. Grab a copy of Dance, Y'all, Dance.
