If it were ever possible for a healthy person to understand how a chronically ill person navigates life, reading To Dance with Dolphins is a perfect opportunity. A small support group decides to travel in an RV from Oregon to Florida together in a rare opportunity to exercise their independence. Contemporary women’s fiction lovers will be glad they joined Claire, Tom, Willow, Sean, and Taylor on their trek to dance with the dolphins. It’s a compassionate look at the physical and spiritual challenges chronically ill people face. Of course, there’s a lot of fun on the way. Bonnie’s story tackles deep, age-old questions. Why does God let some suffer with debilitating diseases? How do I reconcile what God says about my worth with my feelings of worthlessness because of my limitations? Does God even love me? Beautifully written with characters who stick around long after the last page, To Dance with Dolphins entertains and inspires.

This book is the story of four people, all very different but connected because of one thing they have in common - chronic Illness. This is the first book that I have ever read where the main character has a disability and the thoughts, feelings and struggles that Claire experiences are just so real and raw. It was inspiring to see how Claire handled herself, to see how others despite their limitations, battled with all their hearts to achieve and receive their deep hearts desires whilst on their holiday. Quote of the book "We need to live in the now of life, it can't be about how much we suffered yesterday or what we might face tomorrow. It's about today. And today was good" In the magnificent wonderful story telling way that Bonnie Leon is so very gifted in, we get to see how these people learn how to live and not just exist in life. What a awesome powerful story. I absolutely loved it. Thank you Bonnie for writing this book

To Dance With Dolphins Bonnie brings to life four characters brought together by their support group. They decide that despite chronic illness and hidden disabilities they are going to follow a shared dream of traveling to Florida. They decide to prove to themselves and family that they can embark on this adventure, on their own. Though hired to be the driver, Sean finds he has a lot in common with this interesting group. Through their time together and looking out for each other they find themselves focusing on one another rather than themselves. Oh, they still have disabilities that they must live with. There is also a very real emotional aspect that goes along with it. This is the journey they embark on, the successes they enjoy and the relationships that develop. Bonnie Leon has taken on an unconventional topic, yet one many people are acquainted with either personally or through a loved one. This is a look at the story of Claire, Willow, Tom, Taylor and Sean.
