Product description

Product Description

Twenty million years ago, powers of the universe allow an ancient spirit one final chance to achieve a mysterious intellectual purpose, by incarnating it as a dolphin on the planet Azure (Earth.) The spirit is born as Ripple, a vulnerable female with a seeming tendency to insanity. She falls for the scarred fighter-dolphin Cosmo and love inspires her to achieve her purpose. But before she can communicate her discovery, she must overcome terrific odds among the terrors and tragedies of the ancient oceans. If she can succeed, the universe will change forever, and allow dolphins to profoundly affect the yet-to-evolve human race.
Ripple is an inspirational story in the Visionary and Metaphysical Fiction genre. It can also be firmly classed as mind/body/spirit fiction, (MBS) or marine environmental fantasy.
The print version of this unique New Zealand book was selected by the NZ Society of Authors to represent it at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2012, New Zealand's year as "Country of Honour" at the fair. Ripple is already attracting critical acclaim from reviewers around the world and is often favourably compared to Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
Now translated and traditionally published as a hardcover print edition in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Note: For two months from the 22nd April 2016 all Ripple author royalties will be donated to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society.

About the Author

Tui Allen now lives inland, in the Waikato of New-Zealand, which is the ideal location for the cycling and country walking she enjoys these days. But Tui grew up in an Auckland sailing family and her first marital home was a small wooden yacht, the classic H28 design Patricia. In her early married life, she sailed the South-Pacific in Patricia with her husband Bill Simpson and came face to face with many cetaceans who inspired the story of Ripple. Tui has worked as a primary schoolteacher and a web designer. Her previous published work consists of stories, picture books and poetry for younger children, articles for newspapers and magazines, mainly on sports topics and of course many web sites. Tui is very motivated about conservation issues particularly marine conservation. Ripple is her first novel.
