Review: The Dancer

The Dancer
by Avis A. Townsend

Bob has resigned himself to being alone. He's 36, and his parents want to see him settle down before he's too set in his ways, but the women he's been dating leave him feeling empty inside. Then he meets the dancer.

Bob’s parents want him married, no matter what. He’s 36 and, according to his mom, only gay men are still unmarried at that age. But his current relationship is just not working out, and he’s about to give up. Until one day at a street fair, he sees a beautiful young woman dancing. Could she possibly be the nerdy “Katharine the Brain” he used to know in high school?

I’m sure anyone who has been in a bad relationship can enjoy the “escape” of this cute little story. In only a few pages, it contains all the sigh-worthy moments of that first awakening to true love. If you’re looking for a quick, satisfying read, then this is for you. It’s unusual in that it’s 100% from the point of view of the male character, but it works. I recommend it to women of all ages.
