Learning to Dance in the Rain II
Posted by Literary Titan
Learning to Dance in the Rain II: Surviving Grief, Internet Dating and Romance Scams! tells the author’s personal story about her own life experiences, but it is also intended to be a self-help guide to assist others who are going through a similar experience avoid the mistakes that the author encountered. The book explores several different issues following the loss of a spouse, including grieving your loss, deciding whether to remain single or beginning to date again, with a focus on internet dating and how to avoid romance scams online.
The author offers some good tips to help readers who have suffered a loss find ways to cope and work through the grieving process. Although this book is geared toward older women who have lost their husband, many of the suggestions in the first part of the book can be helpful to readers of any age or gender who have lost a loved one. Several of the exercises in the book can be applied to anyone who needs guidance in finding themselves and their worth, and many of the strategies for dealing with rejection can be used not just in an individual’s personal life but in other aspects of their life, as well. I liked how the author was willing to open up and share the details of her own mistakes in order to help others avoid making the same mistakes that she did. And I liked the inclusion of the exercises, which help readers to apply the principles in the book to their own life and situation.
The author cites many expert sources throughout the book, but I would have appreciated it if the numbered footnote information appeared on the bottom of the appropriate page. With an abundance of exclamation points in the beginning of the book and some repetition throughout, though sometimes distracting, it shows the authors passion and brings attention to important points that need to be emphasized.
Learning to Dance in the Rain II, by Shelby Wagner, shares a fascinating life story that will inspire readers to continue through grief and loss. The thought-provoking lessons shared throughout Shelby Wagner’s uplifting story will motivate readers to come to terms with their loss, recover, and create a new life for themselves. This is a refreshing memoir that provides some critical coping and life skills that will stay with you long after you put the book down.
