IWhen she couldn’t do anything else, she went to Paris. This is a story of survival that cuts across death, cancer, Alzheimer’s, loss of home and homeland and cherished heirlooms and possessions, loss of shared histories, of hope for one’s children, of hope for the future, of love. But it’s also about finding love and unexpected joy. And about listening to the music and dancing.

The Church of Tango is a fascinating memoir by Cherie Magnus. I admired her honesty throughout the pages. She does not hold back on her emotions or how she was able to find her way of coping with tragedy. The details of her adventures were entertaining. I liked her bravery, courage, determination, and how she used the love of tango. It was an overall a very good inspiration. I think so many readers who would be able to relate to it.
I am giving The Church of Tango four and a half stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading about real people, issues, how they are able overcome a devastating loss and able to heal. I would love to read more books by Cherie Magnus and learn about her.
I received a copy of The Church of Tango from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
