REVIEW: The Anniversary Waltz by Darrel Nelson

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Darrel Nelson and his publisher for sending me a copy of "The Anniversary Waltz" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
“The Anniversary Waltz” by Darrel Nelson is a heartwarming story of marriage, romantic love and life.  It is an encouraging fiction read for romantics of all ages derived from a wonderful male perspective a la Nicholas Sparks.  It brought back memories of my own grandparents and great-grandparents as Adam and Elizabeth’s love story is told on their 60th wedding anniversary, whose lifetime of love began with a dance.  Following the dance on this auspicious occasion, which is re-enacted as it happened the first time they danced, the family gathers to hear Adam and Elizabeth tell their love story, an anniversary tradition and a beautiful gift to their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and each other.

This story brings hope in the possibility of life-long commitments.  The short chapters keep the pace fast as 60-plus years unfold through the pages.  “The Anniversary Waltz” is an engaging read that touches the heart and ignites the desire for simpler times.  I will be keeping my eyes on this author.
