Anniversary Waltz...Review

About the book:
At their sixtieth anniversary party, Adam Carlson asks his wife, Elizabeth, for their customary waltz. After the dance they gather the family and share their story-a story of love and courage overcoming adversity and thriving in the face of overwhelming odds.

It's the summer of 1946, and Adam has just returned from the war to his home in Reunion, Montana. At a town festival he meets Elizabeth Baxter, a young woman going steady with his former high school rival and now influential banker, Nathan Roberts.

When Adam and Elizabeth share a waltz in a deserted pavilion one evening, their feelings begin to grow and they embark on a journey, and a dance, that will last a lifetime.

As Adam returns home from WW2, he finds his family in danger of losing their farm and he meets a lovely young woman he is immediately drawn to.  Unfortunately, she is dating the banker who is threatening foreclosure on Adam's family's farm.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Adam and Elizabeth's story.  The post WW2 setting was perfect, the villain villainous. Seriously, I hated Nathan. What a jerk.  The story is captivating and simple and hard to put down.

Based on a true story, this is a sweet novel about love and relationships.
