Description

Molly Arnette is very good at keeping secrets. She and her husband live in San Diego, where they hope to soon adopt a baby. But the process terrifies her. As the questions and background checks come one after another, Molly worries that the truth she's kept hidden about her North Carolina childhood will rise to the surface and destroy not only her chance at adoption, but her marriage as well. She ran away from her family twenty years ago after a shocking event left her devastated and distrustful of those she loved: Her mother, the woman who raised her and who Molly says is dead but is very much alive. Her birth mother, whose mysterious presence raised so many issues. The father she adored, whose death sent her running from the small community of Morrison Ridge. Now, as she tries to find a way to make peace with her past and embrace a future filled with promise, she discovers that even she doesn't know the truth of what happened in her family of pretenders. Told with Diane Chamberlain's compelling prose and gift for deft exploration of the human heart, Pretending to Dance is an exploration of family, lies, and the complexities of both.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Susan Bennett does an admirable job with the story of Molly, a woman who is afraid that the secrets of her past will derail the future she and her husband so desperately want. Bennett's voice sounds just a bit young for Molly's present self and, again, a bit old for Molly's teenage self, but she has a confidence of delivery that allows the listener to suspend disbelief and fall into both story timelines. The pacing of the story is also somewhat inconsistent, a quality that is exacerbated by the dual timeline, but Bennett's able narration helps listeners remain engaged even throughout the slower portions of the story.
