Dancing in Heaven is Dancing in Holland!

Today, after work, a parcel was waiting for me on the side table in the hallway. When I came closer, a big smile spread on my face: Christine M Grote‘s book had arrived! Dancing in Heaven made it safely across the ocean.

I threw down my purse, left the groceries at the kitchen table and gently attacked the envelop.

Look at the cute page marker:

When I opened the book, I saw this message:

With a happy sigh I closed my eyes and took a moment to mentally thank Christine for this marvelous gift.

While I’m reading it, Dancing in Heaven will be on my nightstand. And after, it will find a permanent home in my bookchest, with regular sleepovers at my friends’ houses! The story of Annie will spread across the continent.

But first it’s my turn…

THANK YOU, Christine, for sharing your words and thoughts with me, with other Dutchies, through Dancing in Heaven. For the story of your sister Annie. I feel deeply honored.

Your friend,

Caretaker of lads and cats. No lady, but all woman. RPGamer. Avid reader. Writing my first book, squeezing in time during busy days. And nights if needed. Because I'd love to introduce you to the wonderful people who are living in my mind.

    1. Hi Mariane πŸ˜€
      I don’t understand why you are posting this in an ‘old’ post, but I found your message!
      Thanks so much for the invitation to your lovely Edit-challenge, but I am too busy to participate, I’m sorry.
      All is well, don’t worry, I just have much on my plate these days and I need to focus on those things.
      Hugs, thanks again!


  2. Marion, Christine suggested I check out your blog. I lived in the Netherlands two different times for almost 4 years each. I have a special place in my heart for your country and its people. I’m also reading her book and loving every word.


        1. It is small, but with lots of culture and activity. If only there was more room for nature, JoDee. Though the Veluwe, the Wadden islands and the south-east (where I was born) are magnificent πŸ™‚


  3. So glad that you are enjoying Christine’s wonderful memoir of Annie. It truly is a wonderful book and I know how excited she is that you are reading it and sharing it in your country!!! Enjoy!


  4. Finally, i have got some time to dive into your writing. It was very busy, these last few weeks. And when i look at my calendar, it will be best for me to look one day at a time πŸ˜‰ to stay calm. So much appointments…pff. Enjoy your new arrival. Happy reading-times xxx


    1. Take it easy, dear Karin! Like you said, one day at a time. Perhaps you need to take a step back, or stay right where you are at the moment. *hugs*
      Thanks for the reading wishes. You know you are welcome to borrow my books any time. Perhaps even Dancing in Heaven? πŸ˜€


    1. I can imagine you are happy to know Dancing in Heaven has safely arrived, Christine πŸ™‚
      Thanks for inviting me into this cool adventure, which is still continuing. Next phase: reading.


  5. YAY you finally got the book. I know you are going to love it and have fun spreading the news across The Netherlands.
    Much love,


  6. I worked for an agency that provided services for individuals with developmental disabilities – both mild and profound – for 19 years, so when I read what this book is about I had to put it on my Amazon Wish List for future purchase. I know I will love reading it, thank’s much for the point in that direction. How wonderful that your copy made it’s way safely to you to be treasured! πŸ™‚
