To Dance Once More by Sherri Wilson Johnson
Published September 26, 2011

All Lydia wants is to travel the world before she has to settle down with a husband. But she may not have that choice anymore. April 1886. Debutante Lydia Jane Barrington lives a carefree, protected existence on Live Oaks Plantation in Florida. But while her sisters happily learn the traditional tasks of women and talk of courting, Lydia dreams of adventure and independence. Even her friendship with handsome Hamilton Scarbrough isn't enough to hold her back. Then one day Hamilton opens Lydia's eyes and her heart to love. But before they can receive permission to court, Lydia overhears a secret conversation about an unscrupulous business deal. Worse, it has everything to do with her and her future. Now she's faced with the biggest decision of her life-to concede or to fight. Either choice will require great sacrifice...and, perhaps, countless rewards. Passion. Friendship. A bitter enemy. A life-changing decision. Set in Victorian-era Florida.

About the Author:

Sherri Wilson Johnson is a writer and speaker with a passion for sharing God with others, while sharing her life experiences with them. She loves to make people laugh and forget about their troubles with tales of her life in dramatic detail.

From the time she was eight years old, when she wrote her first short story, Sherri has dreamed of being a published author. As a young woman, Sherri wrote her first novel, which she typed on a typewriter and later burned in the fireplace, feeling it was not good enough for publication. This was her only copy. After that, she took a long break from writing. However, in 1993, she began to write again and wrote her novel To Dance Once More. She continued to write, writing two more novels, and experienced one rejection after another from publishers, who offered no advice but to continue to perfect her craft. In 2001, she wrote an article that was published in a magazine and received confirmation from the Lord that she needed to continue writing. Soon after, other articles followed. She wrote her first Bible study and Teach Me Your Way, Lord Jesus, a devotional for homeschool moms, which she self-published and sells at conventions and speaking engagements, as well as here on Amazon Kindle. In 2003, she graduated from the two-year Christian Writers Guild Writing for the Soul course.

To Dance Once More will be published by OakTara Publishers soon, as well as her second novel Song of the Meadowlark. She is currently writing her fourth novel, the sequel to the first, and continuing to submit her other manuscripts to publishers. Writing and the quest for publication has been a life-long journey for Sherri - one that she hopes to continue with great success for the rest of her life.
