Ripple - A Novel by Tui Allen

Have you ever wondered what goes on in the great marine intellects of the whales and dolphins? What wonders might they have achieved during the tens of millions of years of planetary rule they enjoyed before humans came down from the trees?

Recently, forces from the universe decided that the time had come for humans to hear the defining story of their planet. This book is that story. Are we the last intelligent beings in the developed universe to hear it?

Live awhile in Ocean Mind. Be prepared to forget your human material obsessions as you slip away and dance the waves with the young female dolphin Ripple. A divine narrator of the Hereafter sweeps you from Ripple's life in the unimaginably distant past to the not-so-distant future where you can see Ripple's impact on modern humanity.

Follow Ripple as she negotiates the beauties and horrors of the ancient oceans and falls in love with the fighter Cosmo in the wild surf of Point Savage. Be there beside her when love stimulates her to a single achievement which brings renown to this planet, changes the universe forever, exalts the angels and ensures Ripple’s fame will outlive the planet itself.

An "Ancient Mariner" for a new millenium.

  • The story is thrilling, the setting amazing, the reading
    almost a religious experience.

    (Louis Tyrrell, New York author)
  • It is one of the best books I have read in a long, long time,
    and it may have vaulted into my all-time Top Ten list.
    If anyone gives the slightest value to my opinions, I ask
    you to take this book and absorb it, treasure it, make it
    part of you
    (Jonathan Brazee, Bangkok author)
