Jonica and Stacie meet in a doctor’s office at a critical turning point in each of their lives. Jonica is ending unsuccessful infertility treatments and accepting the death of her dream of having children. Stacie has come to schedule the termination of her pregnancy so she can further her dream of a career in law.

Tentatively the two young women reach out to each other. Can they forge an uncommon friendship that will forever transform their future?


“In Rain Dance, Joy puts into words the deep emotions that post-abortive women often cannot articulate ourselves. She not only writes the details with accuracy, but her heart shows though with the same caring and compassion that she uses to minister to each woman God brings to her. Whether you are post-abortive, struggle with infertility or not, you will receive an amazing glimpse into the lives of two women and their unlikely friendship that teaches us all to accept others like Christ does.” —Julie Bashore, Post-Abortion Counselor and Educator, Healing Hearts Ministries

“Thousands of women in our nation and the world daily face both issues. These subjects are not often covered in Christian fiction and really should be. DeKok tackles the subject of infertility and abortion respectfully, with deep feelings and great understanding… . Rain Dance by Joy DeKok is a journey into real life in the form of fiction. DeKok fully explores the terrain of infertility and abortion. DeKok’s characters are full, rich and real. No matter your feelings about the subject matter, Rain Dance will touch your heart.” —Andrea Sisco, Armchair Reviews

“Rain Dance is a beautiful story that stays with you long after you turn the last page. Like ripples on pond, the messages of forgiveness and grace linger in your heart.” —Vicki Tiede, author/speaker for Grace Lessons

“Rain Dance is compulsively readable. The characters draw you in, and you want to keep reading their individual stories. There is a lot of emotion packed between the pages and the faith element is also very strong. I enjoyed the dynamics between the two friends and reading about their emotional and spiritual challenges. There are several wonderful, healing messages in this novel.” —Michelle Sutton, author of the Second Glances Series

“Rain Dance is the catalyst that opened my heart and allowed me to finally grieve for my baby … and to feel not only forgiven, but also healed.” —S. M.(post-abortive reader)

“Rain Dance takes two heartbreaking issues in women’s lives and binds them together with unending and powerful love. The story has a few surprising nuggets of gold as God’s love is revealed.” —Reader
