Okay, but there were too many paragraphs (and even pages) of inner thoughts.

Karen Kingsbury's, A Time to Dance, is the emotional story of a couple having to come to terms with their failing marriage, the consequences of their choices, and their dying faith. I have heard so much about Karen Kingsbury that I was excited to read one of her books. I was told that she is great at realistically capturing the emotions of individuals in real-life struggles. A Time to Dance didn't fail in this aspect. The story was realistic and really showed the couples struggle and pain. I think their emotional struggle is what kept me reading. I was rooting for the couple, gripped by their pain, and hurting for them.
Unfortunately, I was also skimming the story. The story was page after page of inner thoughts and flashbacks. What made it worse was that these thoughts and flashbacks echoed.
"I can make sure no one ever finds out...no one ever finds out...no one ever finds out."
I did finish the book and I loved the message. However, the way it was written made the storyline drag.
