Book 1 in Awakening series (2004)
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
A sleepy rural town in South Carolina. The end of summer and a baby about to be born.
Dylan and Maggie Styles are a couple in love and awaiting the much-anticipated birth of their first child. But events turn tragic in the delivery room. Their son is stillborn, Maggie slips into a coma, and Dylan slips into is own “walking coma.”
In the midst of hope and celebration comes an unexpected tragedy. Everything Dylan ever knew or relied upon is suddenly thrown into doubt as he struggles to come to terms with his loss.
Will the music of his heart be stilled forever—or will he choose to dance with life once more, in spite of sorrow and heartbreak?
The Dead Don’t Dance is a bittersweet yet triumphant love story—a tale of one man’s spiritual journey through the darkness of despair and into the light of hope.
