How to separate the author from the book That is an important question when I set out to read In Search of a Soul I ve read Mr Hill s stories in different forms, including stories of his life in Thailand I ve enjoyed his writing very much The question was Would I enjoy a full length novel about a man on a sailboat Would it be as delightful as what I ve read from this author in brief posts I m thrilled to say the answer is yes This story is so much than an adventure at sea It s a tale of how lov [...]
In Search of a Soul, by Dannie C Hill, is simply an amazing read His romantically descriptive passages of the ocean, his boat, and his internal dialogue is nothing short of magical The intensity and seriousness of the opening chapter contrasted sharply with the serenity of the Douglas journey over the ocean into his future, creating sort of a salt and sugar sensation in my mind Douglas relationship with his boat, Tirak, played out like foreplay in a lover s dance, with complete understanding of [...]
