I agreed to review this book for Blog Tour Spot but since the original tour date didn't work out I'm posting a review today. To read more about Elizabeth's book, Tour de Force and where to purchase it check out this post with all the links!

Tour de Force is the story of Gillian Kincaide, a ballet dancer with Ballet New York and Jacob Ferrar, the director of the Birmingham Ballet Theatre. As they get to know one another by Gilly agreeing to participate in Jacob's Christian ballet, they both discover things about themselves and they find each other becoming more than friends. A tragic accident threatens their budding relationship and force each one to face what God's plans for their lives.

Over all I thought this was an excellent story. At first I was a little afraid that I wouldn't understand all the ballet terms but the glossary at the front helps a lot. I was also afraid that this book might just be all about ballet but it wasn't, the characters had to deal with some really tough issues that ANYONE might face in their lives such as introducing Christ to friends or dealing with false accusations and hurt reputations. The romance in the story was really touching as well. This is definitely a great read even if you don't love ballet. I loved Tour de Force from start to finish!!!
