Dolphin's Dance begins when a Honolulu man who has lived with ALS for twelve-years determines that it is time to gracefully leave this world. After a final farewell, his ashes are spread in the ocean off of Makapuu Point. His spirit is reborn as a Pacific Bottlenose dolphin. In an anthropomorphic style, we follow the life of this dolphin as he is enigmatically drawn to the Hawaiian Islands. The story blends known scientific fact about dolphin behavior with fantasy. Issues that affect their existence are explored by looking at the world through the dolphin's eyes. The dolphin rescues a college student after a surfing accident and begins a quest to communicate with humans. The student's life is irrevocably altered by the experience. She joins a marine mammal rescue team that saves a dolphin from a failing marine park and releases it into the wild. The rescued dolphin and the main character form a bond and travel back to the Hawaiian Islands. Readers who love the ocean and are fascinated by the mammals of the sea will enjoy this novel. The author hopes that by sharing this story more people will be moved to preserve our ocean.
