Bostonian Dawn McCarthy’s life is shattered following a profound double tragedy. Michael, her Irish husband, drowns in a fiery boating accident off the southwest coast of Ireland. Their onlychild, Jason, who has witnessed his father’s death, is diagnosed with traumatic mutism and no longer speaks. Following a series of failed therapies, Dawn believes her son will never talk again.

Rejecting the doctor’s advice, Dawn returns with Jason to the remote Irish fishing village of Kilcastle where her husband had lived and died. There, along the rugged Irish Atlantic coastline, she hopes to find a cure for her son. But it is not an easy return for Dawn. She faces daily reminders of what might have been.

The sudden appearance of a wild dolphin delivers newfound hope. In the days that follow, Dawn witnesses a powerful bond grow between Jason and the dolphin as the boy takes his first small steps toward healing. It is only then that she suspects the enigmatic mammal is much more than she had at first supposed.

Dolphin Song is a tale of terrifying tragedy, magical Irish legends and eternal love. Dawn’s voyage takes readers on an unforgettable journey where those we have loved and lost are not gone forever. Instead, we need only take a leap of faith to find them again.

    I ordered and read this because it was written by a former student of mine. I was enthralled! The story is so engaging and life affirming. Without sentiment it deals with life after great loss. It unfolds piece by piece, drawing the reader until the very spiritual ending is the only logical conclusion. Really a beautifully written story that will stay with me for years.

    I finished Dolphin 🐬 Song last night. What a brilliant story of love, faith, miracles and how to be in community. We don’t always understand what others may endure behind their closed door of home. But when in community we can try a little bit harder to reach out, extend a hand, if they are receptive, always be kind and open your heart

    From the first few pages, this story intrigued me. Then it drew me in, wrapping me in the story. I finished this book in days, not weeks. Such a beautiful tale and though I’ve never been there, a lovely vision of Ireland.
