Book Description

Oct 1997
Dear Maggie.  I will always love you...Keep me safe in your heart.

His letters thrilled her as a young woman in love for the first time, and now, many years later, they mean more than ever to Maggie McIntyre.  After her husband of twenty years leaves her for a younger woman, it's the discovery of Robbie's letters that gives Maggie a renewed sense of purpose: to return to Little Bear Lake and recapture the woman she once was--the woman she knows she could be again.

But time has changed the place she knew and loved.  The Harvest Moon dance hall where she worked as a waitress is closed.  Still, Maggie is determined to reopen it, with the help of friends and a special man who enters her life in a most unexpected way.  As they work together to make her dream come true, a powerful attraction develops between them.  Maggie struggles with her feelings for a younger man whose age stands in the way of her growing affection for him.  But their passion is undeniable, and soon she will have to decide which is more important to her: what other people think, or what she feels in her heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good read 13 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After reading all the reviews I thought I would give my own. To the cynics, this book wasn't meant to be Shakespeare, it was meant to give one an escape and to lighten one's heart. That's what it did for me. This book was very well written, I could see everything the author described. I only wish Maggie hadn't waited so long to go to Eliot. I didn't try to compare this book with Bridges, the two stories are different, and shouldn't be compared. I liked the story, and read it in one day, like others, I just couldn't put it down. After I read the book, I found myself thinking of my own first love, and what would've happened if I had stayed with him. I am going to read other books the author has written under both names. I'm sure they will be just as good. Thank you Catherine Pelliter (aka K. C. McKinnon) for writing this beautiful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story 4 July 1999
By Harmoni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a wonderfully-told story of a man's love of nature and the deep love between one woman and one man to be found only once in a lifetime.
I was amazed by the fantasizing and conjecturing that Maggie went through at such times as when she sees flowers on her doorstep or the phone rings. It was quite realistic, and my heart beat faster each time, as I felt her anxiety.
A beautiful illustration (a loon, a great blue heron, the Harvest Moon . . .), credited to Carl E. Hileman, graces the start of each new chapter. Combined with the beautiful story, including letters written between two young lovers, these illustrations wove magic in my heart.
This book is a treasure. If you enjoy it, try _All the Winters that Have Been_, by Evan Maxwell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story! 11 Sep 2001
By MJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
DANCING AT THE HARVEST MOON made my fantasies of rekindling old flames go sky-high. How I would love to be able to do what Maggie did! I cheered for her for finding herself and learning how to be herself and laughed at the levity provided by her friend, Claire. This story is TRUE romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing, heart warming 23 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first, I was unsure whether or not I would like the content of this book, the way she found herself falling for the son of her long ago love of her life. But as the book went on, I began to enjoy it more. It is about a woman that had been hurt in the past and how she is trying to find herself, find the happiness she has always wanted, and doing something that makes her happy. The more I read, the "closer" I got to the characters and the more enjoyable the story became. Although I admit the story line is not something I usually go for, this book was very refreshing and relaxing. I finished it while I was on vacation in the mountains, and it was the best vacation book I think I have ever read. So, I recommend this book to anyone ready for a good, relaxed story of an independant woman trying to grasp the happiness she has seemed to miss out on all her life.

It is set in an area I am very familiar with, and love. McKinnon sets the scenes so well, you feel you are there. I loved it.
