Remembering to Dance is a fictionalized account based on events that occurred during the author's travels in Guatemala some twenty years ago. The tone is set by personal losses that precede the unexpected solitary journey by the author. Spirit guides and loved ones in Spirit provide guidance and encouragement. The first chapters immerse the reader in interactions with children who live a life of uncertainty and adversity on the streets of the capital city. In stark contrast to this is the idyllic life twelve months later in a beautiful primitive jungle village far above the Rio Dulce. The travels of the villagers to the city to participate in selling hand crafted goods at the market set in motion an adventure that carries the reader through the web of intrigue of the theft and sale of babies and small children that was prevalent at that time. Helping hands reach out from Central America all the way north, through Sanctuary cities, to the State of Maine and move the fast paced story forward to its exciting conclusion.
