    1. The third in the Train to Estelline trilogy, Dance is another of Woods beautifully, simply written books about life, just life and its joys and rigorous struggles in Depression era West Texas While you would think the eternal dust and deprivation would bring the reader low, the small moments bring brightness to the story Lucy and Josh Arnold have answered an ad for a school principal and a position for his wife and moved to the panhandle of West Texas, near Canadian, in 1931 They moved with thei [...]


    2. While the issues handled in the first two books are weighty enough, this one is personal It s difficult in any of them to feel any of the despair or frustration that some of the characters must be feeling certainly people who actually lived through these events did I m not sure why, since the author doesn t stray from discussing the topics, but all three books come across as light and happy ending This book experiments with different narrative styles, switching POV and tense often It works bett [...]


    3. I wish I wouldn t have read these three books in a row because I was a little tired of the series by the time I started this one There s a gap of about 7 years between this book and the second, so reading at least one other book in between would make sense That said, I ended up enjoying this book than the others There s tragedy in this book, but I liked the way it was handled There was character development in this one Overall, a good series about east and west Texas.


    4. This is the third book in the Lucy series and I wouldn t recommend reading this one alone nor out of order You would miss so much of the history of the characters This one broke my heart and if you don t like a book with sadness, you may want to pass on it I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy and am sad not to be able to continue the story of Lucy s life.
