More informationEssence best-selling author Gwynne Forster writes thought-provoking tales of love and personal growth. In When You Dance with the Devil, Forster explores the complicated lives of two lost souls looking to start over at a Maryland boarding house. Fannie Johnson has seen darn near all the world has to offer at her Thank the Lord Boarding House. After spending 35 years under the thumb of her vindictive mother, Sarah Jolene Tilman is ready to strike out on her own. In stark contrast, Richard Peterson has done more than his share of living and is looking for simpler pleasures. Under Fannie’s watchful eye, each will embark on paths of self-exploration—and find that life is nothing if not a wildly unpredictable journey. Forster continues to delight fans with her tender treatment of personal relationships.
