Sculptor Amy Freeman fears the worst when her 14-year-old son Zach disappears one morning. In the same California town, science teacher Robert Candine suddenly finds God. His revelation sets him on a collision course with a troubled student, the legal system, and eventually with Amy. Can he find peace in time to stop himself from a reckless act that will change his life forever?
Dance of Souls weaves together the stories of a few lost souls, each seeking meaning in their own way. If you like books that make you think about what drives our life choices, you’ll savor Kalman’s dive into her characters’ imperfections, stumbles, and occasional encounters with grace.
A book for anyone who has ever wondered what it all means.
