The Sweet Lie or the Bitter Truth

NEW BERLIN, Wis., June 25, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Readers with hearty appetites for moving family dramas will do well by picking up a copy of a newly released collaborative novel by P. Diane Truswell & Mary L. Kling. In Dare To Dance (Xlibris Publishing), Truswell and Kling brilliantly interweave the elements of love, betrayal, and redemption into an unforgettable tale that asks: What would you do if the happiest phase of your life was a big lie?

Dare To Dance, slated to hit bookstores this month, tells the story of Karen, an ordinary woman with two adult children who finds herself confronted by unexpected life twists and the obstacles that follow. Just before her beloved husband dies, Karen unearths a shocking discovery about the man she loved with all her heart, and the father of her two children. After his death, Karen finds herself thrown into a realm of grief and bitterness.

Now all Karen can think about are the endless questions that have risen from her discovery. Who was she in that marriage, and who is she now? Has her whole life been an elaborate lie? Dare To Dance, a masterful collaborative work by P. Diane Truswell & Mary L. Kling, is a riveting, moving tale about one struggling family's separate - yet somehow intertwined - odyssey in finding the truth about themselves.

Dare To Dance is now available online at Xlibris.com.
