The Actual Dance
Samuel A. Simon, author
A love story with an unexpectedly happy ending. The Actual Dance is told through the eyes and heart of a husband as he struggles with his worst fears during what everyone expects to be his wife’s losing battle to breast cancer. Determined to support the “other half of his whole,” he provides the positivity his love partner demands and the caregiving she needs. He doesn’t share his fears, even as he becomes more certain of her upcoming demise. He also keeps his visits to the virtual ballroom—where each one of us will exit into eternity—secret until he begins to wonder if he’s losing his mind. Like the play upon which it was based, The Actual Dance will take you on an emotional but uplifting journey and reward you with a universal, life-affirming lesson of hope, faith and love.
