Publisher's Summary

When You Dance with the Devil explores the complicated lives of two lost souls looking to start over at a Maryland boarding house. Fannie Johnson has seen darn near all the world has to offer at her Thank the Lord Boarding House. It is home to a variety of interesting people who regard each other as family. One such is Sarah Jolene Tilman, who, after spending 35 years under the thumb of her vindictive mother, is ready to strike out on her own. In stark contrast, Richard Peterson has done more than his share of living and is looking for simpler pleasures. Under Fannie's watchful eye, each will embark on a path of self-exploration and find that life is nothing if not a wildly unpredictable journey. Essence best-selling author Gwynne Forster writes thought-provoking tales of love and personal growth.

I did not want this book to end...

This was one of my favorite books I've downloaded so far. It was a very easy listen and just a great story. The narrator had a very pleasant sounding voice and she did fabulously when changing from one person to another. Believable! I wish that the author would write a sequel. In a nutshell, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Simple nice story with ups and downs in the lives of the characters. I may listen to it again, which is something I rarely do.

Plenty of Suspense

The story held my interest and offered enough suspense to be a "page turner" ...The central character is very likable and I cared what happened to her. Who her father turned out to be was a good surprise... Interesting story.
