A very moving story. Although a work of fiction you can tell the emotions in it are real. It's not often I cry at a story but I did for this one. (Amazon.uk reviewer)
This one is definitely a roller coaster ride. Ms. Smith does a great job of getting you to feel the angst that Catherine is experiencing. Ialmost didn't read it because I thought it would be too depressing, butthat wasn't the case. I'm really glad I gave it a chance. Strongly inthe court of women's fiction, there's a hint of romance, but it's notthe focus of the book. Loved it! (Lily Bishop.com)
From the Back Cover
Catherine Cannon has spent her life keeping secrets and trying to outrun her past. Speaking about her past, about her family, is taboo and she has only shared her life with her closest childhood friend.
But when Catherine reaches a milestone, she willingly places herself in a situation where she is faced with having to talk in-depth with a psychologist. It's the only way she can confront her past head on as she seeks the answer to one question - does she carry the defective gene that causes Huntington's disease?
A gritty, dark look at living with Huntington's disease, poverty, and pain, the humor fused throughout makes Never Ending Dance an emotional rollercoaster ride.
Catherine Cannon's struggles, triumphs and sheer will to survive will have readers cheering her on until the bitter end.
