A memoir following a marriage into mental illness of a spouse, domestic violence, children, divorce and ending in suicide. Combining the author's writing with journal entries, a story of loss and learning to step into the dance of life again.

After 12 years of marriage and trying so hard to make a failing marriage work, Alycia Neighbours found herself going from the office of a lawyer to the office of a funeral home. With three small children and herself left behind in a whirlwind of events, Alycia talks with a transparency of hurt, forgiveness and grace as she attempts to find a way to live again within the loss.

A powerful, vivid and raw story into the life of a silenced survivor, "Deciding To Dance" is an emotional journey that leads you to a dance floor and encourages those who are suffering to learn to dance again in life.


Rachael Oliver - ""Deciding to Dance" is a real life story that touches home to me. As a suicide survivor in a somewhat similar situation, I can honestly say that Alycia has gone over the top in sharing her story with her readers. This story is real. It's painful. It will have you in tears and it will make you smile. Her creative writing style along with the life (and death) that she has shared in "Deciding to Dance" shows what a courageous and brave wife, mother, and woman she is. This story will touch your heart and possibly change your life!!"

Dana Cope - "Deciding to Dance is an incredible story of strength and healing. The author has a gift of making the reader feel like he or she is living the story. The reader feels all the emotions of the story. I highly recommend reading this book, whether you are going through loss or not. It's a very moving, emotional, and powerful story."
