Reviews for A Mother’s Dance

A Mother's Dance5 stars. “I must confess that God placed this book into my lap. Literally. As the mother of a son with ABI, Acquired Brain Injury, I struggle daily with many of the same issues Pattie brings up in this book. In my prayers I often begged God to show me that I was not alone. A Mother’s Dance is the answer to that prayer. The moments that define Pattie’s days, weeks, months and years are moments that many of us share, often in the shadows. I love the strength of Pattie as she works on behalf of her son against all odds. Pattie weaves into the book the lives of each member of her family, with all their own individual brokenness, joys, and successes and how our lives are but a moment on the dance floor of life. I wept with her and applauded her through every chapter. Even those without a brain injured child can benefit from Pattie’s story. Well done and highly recommended.” – Michelle Welch for NetGalley


5 stars. “I thought this book was a great read & had my interest from beginning to end. A touching story of a mothers love & sacrifice for her children especially when she has been through so much with them. A tragic story that will have you hugging your children & not wasting an opportunity with them. Great story telling.” – Courtney Ceballos for NetGalley


5 stars. “This book really impacted me as a mother of three teenage boys. I had to read it in increments to keep from crying too much. What an entailing story of a mother’s journey from grief to joy. Her reliance on her faith in God and the relationship she had with Him. At times when Pattie was feeling all alone, the Lord gave her strength and she prevailed time and time again. What endurance and determination to get to victory, despite the odd’s. I was relieved to see that her son was healed and went on to live a normal life. This shows to never give up hope and that God is truly a healer.” – Adrienne Servis for NetGalley
