Serving on the European front, Lenny longs for Natasha, the girl who captured his heart back home. He writes bogus reports, designed to fall into the hands of Nazi Intelligence. To fool the enemy, these reports are disguised as love letters to another woman. This task must remain confidential, even at the risk of Natasha becoming suspicious of him.
Once she arrives in London, Lenny takes her for a ride on his Harley throughout England, from the White Cliffs of Dover to a village near an underground ammunition depot in Staffordshire. When he is wounded in a horrific explosion, Natasha brings him back to safety, only to discover the other woman's letter to him. He wonders, will she trust him again, even though as a soldier, he must keep his mission a secret? Will their love survive the test of war?
In the past Natasha wrote, with girlish infatuation, "He will be running his fingers down, all the way down to the small of my back, touching his lips to my ear, breathing his name, breathing mine. Here I am, dancing with air." In years to come, she will begin to lose her memory, which will make Lenny see her as delicate. "I gather her gently into my arms, holding her like a breath." But right now, during the months leading up to D-Day, she is at her peak. With solid resolve, she is ready to take charge of the course of their story.
Dancing with Air is a standalone WWII historical fiction novel, as well as the fourth volume of a family saga series titled Still Life with Memories, one of family sagas best sellers of all time. If you like family saga romance, wounded warrior romance books, military romantic suspense, or strong female lead romance, you will find that this love story, twisting and turning through its marital issues, is a unique melding of them all.

Breathtaking love story, World War II, epic tale
Both are wonderful. I read the print version first because I love to re-read lines. With the audio version, you already know the characters and feel so very THERE with them. Fabulous!
I loved best the author's writing! Her ability to make you feel every scene, every emotion, whether the tension of the war or Lenny's heartbreaking remembrances of how Natasha used to be before Alzheimer’s took her away from him. This is a story that so deeply touches you that you will never forget it.
I loved the story of the beautiful grand piano that was destroyed in a London hotel bombing. Natasha, a brilliant pianist, tells Lenny that it was good that the piano was there so people could crawl under it, and the piano “saved their lives.” This scene tells us Natasha's character - and why Lenny loved her - with such depth that it makes your heart hurt. It also makes so real what it felt like to be in war.
A love story for the ages
Don Warrick's reading of this story is beautiful, so heartfelt. His performance is a beautiful companion to the depth and brilliance of this story.
