 All Other Ground is the third book in award-winning author, Doris Dancy’s Redemptive Love Series and it doesn’t disappoint. Summer Carlton, the protagonist in this riveting story told in multiple POVs, is distraught because the man she’s in love with is marrying another woman. She’s so devastated that she thinks about doing the unthinkable, but fate would have it that her plans are thwarted. And instead of ending her life, she starts a new one, miles away from the home where she grew up.

Summer becomes fast-friends with Jillian, a Christian woman who’s married with two children. Jillian invites Summer to her church picnic where Summer meets some interesting people, one of whom piques her curiosity. Summer, still struggling with demons from her past, tries her best to move forward with her new life, but the road is bumpy and full of missteps. However, she trudges in the hope of finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Will Summer overcome the past? Will she find everything she’s ever wanted? Those questions and Doris’s beautiful writing kept me turning the pages. 

Doris’s writing is lovely and engrossing. She grabs you at chapter one. She has created a cast of three-dimensional characters that will pull at your heartstrings and make you root for them every step of the way. There are many reveals, twists, and turns in All Other Ground that I’m dying to give away, but I won’t. Do yourself a favor and get the book yourself. It is definitely worth the read, especially if you’ve ever been wronged, if you’ve ever had a difficult time forgiving, if you’ve felt less than and unlovable, if you’ve struggled with your relationship with God. There’s something for everyone in this inspirational book. Bravo Doris Dancy! Bravo!!!

Born in Oakland and raised in San Francisco, playwright and author, Alretha Thomas is making her name through her pen. She started at the age of ten, when her 5th grade teacher picked and read her short story assignment in front of the class – that simple, loving act empowered a new writer. A graduate of U.S.C., Alretha’s plays have graced numerous Southern California stages. Her most recent production, “One Woman, Two Lives,” starred Kellita Smith of the Bernie Mac Show. Her debut novel, “Daughter Denied” was launched in 2008 and has received glowing reviews from readers and book clubs across the country. Her second novel “Dancing Her Dreams Away,” launched in 2011 and was also well-received. “Married in the Nick of Nine” is her third novel and she recently completed the sequel, “The Baby in the Window.” Alretha says the one and only upside to her 350-mile-a-week-commute, is that it gives her ample time to come up with story ideas. When not in bumper–to-bumper traffic she enjoys going to the movies, blogging, and spending time with her husband Roy.
