Robin Molineux

In this unique collection of stories, each story chronicles an emotional dance of some type-the dance of life, the dance of death. Each story resonates with the knowledge that every person must learn the steps to his or her own dance and with the subtle reality that each of us recognizes when the dance is over. In "Lost," Ginny longs for the innocence of a life that is long gone-obliterated by alcohol and lost love. She has lost the desire to live and love; she is hopeless, even in the face of life in the exotic South Pacific. In "The Yellow Dress," set in New Zealand, Joseph Miller is mourning the loss of his beloved wife and wondering how he will spend his remaining time-since he is also unwell. He wanders aimlessly through his days, not focusing on anything in particular. Then one day, by chance, he joins some people at a cultural performance, the type of event he would have normally skipped in the past. That night something happens that changes him-and once again he finds himself joining the dance of life. "All in Order" explores the dance of marriage, hindered by the neuroses of man to whom order is of utmost importance. "The Dancing Hills" depicts the dance of new relationship in which both the tune and the dancers are somewhat unconventional. Full of life, love and emotions, the stories in Dances will awaken your heart and take you along on some surprising journeys.
