    1. A book which is a balm to the soul. Michael Mayne explores the interface between faith, spirituality, Christian beliefs and 'modern life' through the theme of life's dance, which unties the ages and gives us a glimpse of eternity. He uses the months of the year, the changing seasons and traditional 'book of hours' occupations to structure each chapter's genesis, and he intersperses his dialogue with the reader around many quotes from authors, spiritual leaders, religious works and indeed ordinar [...]

    2. I am not sure this would be a 5-star book for everyone but for me for now it most definitely was. This book is about the 12 seasons of the year or rather of life. It uses the theme of dancing and the ideas in the traditional Book of Hours to frame life. It is written from a thoroughly Christian perspective and I found it a lifeline of hope and joy. It is not fundamentalist though. A beautifully written book for modernity on living and dying.

    3. This is a great book for reminding you of the beauty of God's creation and the passing seasons in the world around us and life itself. An inspiring book with great quotes from literary greats too.
