A Review of Jagged Edges by Doris H. Dancy

In Jagged Edges, Doris H. Dancy weaves a romantic tale of deception and betrayal, faith and love.  With all of its twists and turns, the writer engages the reader and provides no opportunity to close the text and leave it unattended for more than a very short time. This suspenseful love story is like a magnet that draws and holds its readers.

Dancy is a talented storyteller whose characters are authentic. As they move through their world, these men and women challenge readers to grow with them. The characters set out on a quest to capture real romance, but they stumble and fall into confusion and chaos.  Mistake after mistake draws the reader into the prism of their lives wondering if they can find their way out of a maze that could destroy both heart and soul. Through the pages, hopeless romantics fall in love with them, feel the joy of infatuation, and the anger of deception.

Dancy holds the reader fixated in her fictional world of wealth, expectation, duplicity, joy, and pain.  At the turn of each page, she pulls you into one conflict after another, into the glamour and excitement of new friendships, the undeniable allure of devotion, the tear jerking humiliation of betrayal, and a desperate search for God.  In the end, she leaves you breathless at your own loud exhalation as you discover that there is no more for now. 

Derek, Morgan, Arianna, and Zack make us laugh, cry, and hope, as they force us to make our own choices about relationships with others. We pray that they find love, themselves, and above all the path to God.
