2010 mini-ring to kelsey10; returned; I felt that I read this book or something similar before. Maggie leaves her home after her divorce, coming back to Canada to where her first love lived and buying the Harvest Moon inn, where she first fell in love. Her first love is dead of a heart attack, but she's strangely very attracted to his son Eliot. Dare she try at love again with someone so much younger? ( )

This is a book about mid-life. It's about what was, what is and what will be. The story revolves around Maggie, a professor, and her dreams that were given up after her brother died in Vietnam.
It is a story of The Road Not Taken, returning to the place of youth and experiencing love all over again. ( )

Christmas present from my grandfather - otherwise I would never have read this. Because the book wasn't my kind of thing at all, I can't remember anything about it. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385489935, Hardcover)

In Dancing at the Harvest Moon, a story of first love rekindled, 46-year-old Maggie McIntyre has just lost her husband to another woman and sees no reason to remain in Kansas City. She decides to return to The Harvest Moon, the dance hall where she worked in college. So we go there with her, back to the beautiful Canadian town on Little Bear Lake, where Maggie faces all of those juicy yet unanswered questions: Will true love find her? Will Rob, her first love, finally forgive her? Is she prepared to face the demons that have for so long kept real passion at bay? Author K. C. McKinnon is actually "respected literary novelist" (as she is described on the dust jacket) Cathie Pelletier.
