Author Doris H. Dancy is a spiritual romanticist and at peace with the world. This is reflected in her Redemptive Love Series of romance novels. All Other Ground is the third book that focuses on Summer Carlton, a peaceful woman turned vindictive by the events in her life--a natural but unhealthy response to negative stimuli. But Summer wins our empathy when the man she has loved for a long time marries another woman. The time and effort she has invested in the relationship all went down the drain upon the tolling of the wedding bells that she could hear as she drives away to extricate herself from the pain of Zack’s betrayal. What follows as she tries licking her wounds and moving on is a difficult path toward renewal.
To say that this story is a feel-good romance novel is an understatement. It touches not only your emotional sensibilities but your spirit as well. Ms. Dancy works on the theme that we are all, in one way or another, “broken people” from how we react to the events in our lives. The novel reads like an extended parable that builds up its piquancy as the plot moves forward. It does not lecture, but it guides. Whether or not you prefer to deal with challenges by subscribing to supernatural abstraction, All Other Ground will make you reevaluate how you use your power to choose. It deserves a space on every bookshelf of readers who prefer an alternative to formulated romance novels.
