CaseyOregon4 Stars Out Of 5Amazing Dance World GlimpseApril 27, 2012CaseyOregonQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3"Tour de Force" is a magnificent glimpse into a world of tutus and frills and pointe shoes. It's always a wide-eyed view of the human condition and how far someone will go to get what they want.
If ever someone, who has no coordination and can't be graceful if she tried, wanted to experiment in the world of ballet, this book would be the ticket. Detail, research and understanding of that world really brought it to life. I thought I might be in New York looking through the window of the high rise dance studio (though that sounds uncomfortable_)
I will say in that great research, I got a bit lost in all the characters were trying to do to save their careers and dance studios. I think a better personal understanding of how the dance world works would have been helpful on my end.
The love story is sweet, but I would have liked it to take a greater precedent. I felt it slipped into the background through the middle to two-thirds of the book.
I would have liked to get to know Gilly better. I found her a bit closed off to the reader and I wanted to really dig into what made her tick as a character. I could say the same for Jacob too.
But overall, it's a good book and one I'm glad I tried on for size.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

I LOVE dancing, and have been peforming since I was 11-years old. Once I gave my life to the Lord, not only did I change, but so did my dance, as well. I love how this story incorporates two of my favorite things: dance & romance into one. And, above all, I like how the main character relates to me because I want to spend the rest of my life doind exacly what she's doing -- dancing for her Lord!
AJH5 Stars Out Of 5November 17, 2009AJHI really liked this book. It had such a great story line and side stories too. How lives can intertwine and also how important it is to be a witness. Made me either want to be a ballerina or meet a artistic director!! Great read!!
Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5October 14, 2009Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: femaleReview by Gretchen HoffmanI love ballet. Although I never got past intermediate ballet class as a kid, I love going to see dance performances, and if theres a book about dancers, you bet itll pique my interest.Gillian Kincade is an upcoming ballet star in the New York dance scene. Jacob Ferrar left the glitz of performing to become an artistic director, focusing on dance that glorifies God. When Jacob offers Gilly the lead in his play, she has to decide where shes supposed to be. But after an accident, the dancing future for both becomes uncertain, and they must learn to trust where God leads.This book was just as fantastic as I expected it to be. (The cover alone made me want to read this! Especially since I love ballet.) The main characters were so fun, and the secondary characters were just as intriguing and well written as the main ones. I especially liked how real everyone was. Gillian and Jacob were not perfect by any meansthey struggled with how to express their Christianity in everyday life and where the line is between tolerance of others lifestyles and still sticking up for morality and truth. Sometimes it seems like the characters in books have it all figured out, but Gilly and Jacob didnt, and the book didnt end with them suddenly being able to perfectly balance their ideals with non-Christians around them. Life doesnt always have simple answers, and this book showed that. Plus, Ms. White did an excellent job of showing Gods miracles. Although miracles seem rare nowadays, God is always faithful, and miracles today are just as real as they ever were. An excellent read. I will be getting more of Elizabeth Whites books for sure.
Chandra Lynn5 Stars Out Of 5September 30, 2009Chandra LynnThis love story was a pleasure to read. The characters were creative and endearing. I loved both Gillian and Jacob; two people with faith and flaws. From the first page of the book the reader is drawn into a story that becomes both a journey and a dance. Gillian and Jacob have their own personal issues, weaknesses to resolve, as well as professional and relational. The settings of the New York ballet and a regional dance company in Alabama were both new and refreshing. I enjoyed every page, every conflict and resolution, and the sweet romance touched my heart. Clear your weekend, for once you begin this novel you will not want to stop until the dance is complete. Enjoy!
