What Readers Are Saying. . .

  • God’s hand on every page!
  • Rain Dance is compelling and timely.

  • DeKok’s characters are full, rich and real. The storyline is difficult but DeKok handles it adeptly. No matter your feelings about the subject matter, Rain Dance will touch your heart.

  • No matter what your opinion is of the reason these two women first met, your heart will be gripped my their story. You will not be the same once you have read this book.

  • For me Rain Dance was deeply touching and spiritually profound. I can’t remember the last time I’ve read something so insightful.

  • Rain Dance is a wonderful book.

  • What a great read! It was so refreshing to read a “real book” meaning the characters jump of the page and the plot is believable. I appreciate that their problems were not solved in any trite and convenient way, but instead they each went on a raw spiritual journey.

  • This story was awesome and I just couldnt stop reading it.

  • Rain Dance is one of those stories that stays with you long after you finish reading the last sentence. Joy DeKok has written a powerful story between two unlikely friends who share a most unexpected journey. It’s such a beautifully written example of how God crosses our paths with those we most likely never would’ve found on our own . . . then weaves our stories together in order to pour out His grace and forgiveness and love as only He can do. This is a story not to be missed.

  • Yes, it’s a God-inspired and thought-provoking book about an infertile woman and a post-abortive woman who form an unlikely and amazing friendship. But it’s much more. It should be required reading for any woman planning a pregnancy – or an abortion. I was surprised none of the previous reviews mentioned an unusual twist that presented just a whisper of mystery and added a whole new dimension to the motherhood theme. Maybe it just hit a special chord with me. But you don’t want to miss it.

  • For me, the mark of good writing is when I can really identify with the main characters; when I care deeply about what happens, though I may have nothing in common with them. Such is the case with RAIN DANCE. This is a fine, engrossing, well-written book that kept me reading late into the night. It’s a cliche, but I really couldn’t put it down.

  • I highly recommend Rain Dance to all women because of the underlying theme of the true bond of a very special friendship.

  • Rain Dance by Joy DeKok is a moving look at the power of friendship and faith.

  • I love this book! Author Joy DeKok captured my heart on the first page and wrapped the characters around it from beginning to end.

  • I applaud DeKok for the naked, honest emotions her characters displayed. She didn’t try to soften Jonica’s railing at God, nor Stacie’s self-centeredness. I found Jonica’s faith to be very real and practical. Her journey to healing and Stacie’s path to faith were both believable, and not something manipulated by the author. They are women from different backgrounds and belief systems when they meet. And yet, I believed the friendship that grew between them. I came to love Stacie as much as Jonica. Rain Dance is truly a prodigious book. It bears healing within its pages for hurting women, whether they are scarred by post abortion syndrome or infertility, Rain Dance is a must read. But be sure to have a hankie handy. I give it a high recommendation.

  • If you want to learn to dance in the rain, grab your umbrella and read this insightful book.

  • The message of God’s love and redemption, His forgiveness, grace and mercy is threaded throughout the book. For those women who have experienced Him and know Him, this message is a beautiful reminder of God’s love for you. And for those who do not know Him, this book is to meet God and become intimately acquainted with Him. No matter which group of women you are in, when you finish reading the last page and close the book, you will be a changed woman.

  • In Rain Dance, Joy DeKok skillfully takes readers on a journey of turmoil, anguish, healing, and joy. She beautifully portrays the deep, heart wrenching emotions many women–Christian and non-Christian–experience in dealing with infertility or the aftermath of abortion. The author completes the portrait by demonstrating that healing and freedom are attainable through God’s love and grace.

  • Beautifully and sensitively written, Joy DeKok honestly tells a true love story in all its aspects. A story of forgiveness and redemption, and the ripple-effect of what happens when one gives herself completely into the hands of the Lord.
    I urge you to get a copy of Rain Dreams and read this remarkable work of fiction.

  • The hope that Rain Dance gives its reader is life changing.

  • While dealing with tremdously difficult issues, Joy wove a beautiful story of the Lord’s working in two women’s lives. You laugh, cry and get angry with them. Every chapter keeps you wanting to know more and when the last page is turned you are sad that the story has ended.

  • This is a novel about putting your faith in a higher power, for the human soul, alone, can only get you through so much.

  • Without being preachy, this story offers hope for the wounded and those who walk with them.

  • Rain Dance was a wonderfully written book with a unique format that was so refreshing! I was tremendously impressed with how the author was able to relate the feelings and experiences of both the infertile woman and the post-abortive woman, without judging either one for their decisions. I became so involved in the character’s lives that I just couldn’t put this book down!
