A Haitian-born author writes about a 17 year old leaving her homeland to make a new start in this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Serenity Dance: The First Steps” by Danielle Wainwright, Ph.D.

The beautiful girl finds, however, that living in a foreign land has challenges of its own.

Flying to Germany on her 17th birthday to join her half-brother and his family is just the first step Gabrielle takes to escape the poverty and political unrest of her Haitian homeland. The beautiful girl finds, however, that living in a foreign land has challenges of its own, and this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing describes the journey that unfolds for Gabrielle and her faith in mankind and God.

“Serenity Dance: The First Steps,” the first novel in a series, follows Gabrielle’s life as she makes life-changing decisions, from leaving her first love to overcoming culture shock and re-inventing herself as she finds herself with a new family, new school and new set of friends. She slowly begins to make new friends and find her place with her half-brother’s wife and young son. Although Gabrielle is in Germany, her heart remains in Haiti and with her boyfriend Benji.

All is going well until a snowy day brings a shocking act that will steal her dreams and faith. Gabrielle experiences further betrayal when she receives unwelcome news from overseas. Can she overcome the obstacles put in her path and continue her education and hope of improving the lives of women across the globe? In this compelling book, inspired by a true story, Gabrielle’s own determination and an unexpected form of support may be enough to put her on a new path in life.

The Haiti native has published articles in literary journals and written several book reviews, and she has given presentations at literary conferences globally.
