An epileptic Black ballerina and a Powwow dancer whistleblower journalist meet in the Montreal Airport. They are both scheduled to perform in Berlin, 1973 Cold War Berlin. Their love evolves during the transatlantic crossing. On a long lay over in Zurich, he stuns her by depositing many hundreds of thousands of dollars in his Swiss bank account, to which he adds her name with no true explanation. Ripped apart by the war against industrial pollution, and the mangling of human life by mercury poisoning, their duty is their downfall…until they rise again-- proving that in the time of mercury poisoning, loving someone enough to let them go is only for cowards.
Chasing Mercury is a soaring cross cultural, romantic-suspense with strong memoir elements of families devoted to human and environmental rights. The novel honors the 2017 ratification of the United Nations Minamata Convention on Mercury, and its going into force as international law. Chasing Mercury is the first of a series of three books.
Reviewers say, Chasing Mercury is... a beautifully written international story of love and adventure...exploration of deepest emotions pull you headlong into a journey leaving you waiting eagerly for the next book in the series... the best of the romance genre, wrapped in an introduction to human and environmental rights...a lyrical, erotic and embodied prose of resistance and resilience...
