Mary Alice Monroe says, “With every novel, I strive to reconnect human nature with the natural world. And my hope is that when readers close the book, they’ll love the story, but also realize they’ve learned a lot about our beloved Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.” See more photos online at www.moultrienews.com.

Award-winning, bestselling Southern novelist Mary Alice Monroe kicked off her 30-city book tour in the Southeast to celebrate the release of “The Summer Wind” at Wild Dunes. It's the second installment of The Lowcountry Summer Trilogy and follow-up to last year's New York Times bestselling “The Summer Girls.”

Monroe wrote the book after learning that 48-52 percent of the resident dolphins in South Carolina and Florida are sick or contaminated.

The current plight of the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin became the backdrop of the trilogy. “The Summer Wind” continues the story about sisterhood, second chances and lifelong bonds among three estranged half-sisters forced to spend a final summer together at the family's beach house on Sullivan's Island. And it continues the saga of Delphine, an enigmatic wild dolphin whose perilous life serves as the trilogy's keystone.
