Diane LeBow’s Dancing on the Wine-Dark Sea: Memoir of a trailblazing woman’s travels, adventures, and romance, has received a Five Star Review from Readers’ Favorite. Here is the review, calling the book a “heartfelt and emotionally stirring work, takes us on a powerful journey that traverses many different lands, in which she learns about empowering others, expanding her heart and mind, and engaging in meaningful and passionate encounters with other people. What results is an inspiring book about grabbing all that life has to offer you and celebrating it. LeBow leaves no stone unturned and no question unanswered in this wonderfully open, honest, and vivid account of pursuing an adventurous and exciting life, and learning a lot of lessons about balance and happiness in the process. There is something for everyone in the varied and thrilling experiences the author recounts.”
