To Dance with Dolphins by Bonnie Leon

Twenty-one-year-old Claire Murray has suffered from a mysterious disease for years. Her social circle has shrunk to a small support group for people with chronic illness and disability. But what if life could be about more than doctors, pain, and medications?  Claire and three others—old grouch Tom, hippy-holdout Willow, and moody Taylor—hatch plans for a cross-country trip to swim with the dolphins in Florida. Only a day into the trip, they unexpectedly need help. And who happens to be hitchhiking along the highway but a young, good-looking loner named Sean Sullivan? However, the last thing he wants is to be harnessed to a bunch of ailing travelers.

My Review

This was one of those books that you as a reader learn life lessons & God lessons right along with the characters. Trusting God in everything is one of the lessons learned.  It’s not easy having a chronic illness especially ones that are not visible. I smiled with the characters, felt sad, and was frustrated. Although Claire, was the “main character” this book did well to feature the other characters too. I didn’t know a lot about chronic illnesses before reading this book. I have better understanding the challenges that come up.
I recommend this book to others.
I received this book from the publisher to read and review. 🙂
