DANCING ON WAVES
Hillary Hauser, author
"Dancing on Waves" is a daring tale of a well-known ocean adventurer crashing into divorce, cancer, and depression; and how this paralyzing calamity propelled her to find comfort in the ocean. With the ocean as metaphor, the author takes the reader from a deep emotional dive to the surface - describing a process of healing of emotional pain and hurt in a similar way a diver must ascend slowly to avoid the dreaded "bends," which can cripple and maim forever. The book tells how she discovered cancer of the breast in herself, how she thought of it, and survived. The text is powerful - by swimming, floating, and reflecting on the inner workings of the ocean and its creatures, and riding waves to join with the Forces of Nature, she swims and dives her way to freedom.
