NEW YORK—March 5, 2019—Morgan James’ new book release, Who Said I’d Never Dance Again: A Journey from Hip Replacement Surgery to Athletic Victory by Darla Davies, tells the story of Davies’ comeback to ballroom dancing after joint replacement surgery. This book was written to encourage anyone that has experienced physical setbacks, especially athletes.

In the world of athletics, one serious injury can be career-ending. Author and ballroom dancer Darla Davies experienced this firsthand when she received an artificial hip. As joint replacements typically severely limit one’s agility and flexibility, Davies was often told that she could never return to the dance floor. However, Davies’ new book, Who Said I’d Never Dance Again, explains how she defied the odds and came back to ballroom dancing stronger than ever before.

Who Said I’d Never Dance Again recounts the difficult journey that Davies took after her injury and surgery, before managing to regain the national championship three years later. It also comforts readers that are facing their own surgery, and teaches them what they should and should not do in order to make the best recovery possible. Who Said I’d Never Dance Again not only helps these people overcome their physical setbacks, but also inspires them with the joy and passion to continue to chase their dreams, regardless of their injuries.
