CORONATION STREET STAR, WILLIAM ROACHE MBE, AKA KEN BARLOW, WRITES FOREWORD FOR THE PERFECT PAIR: THE ENCHANTED MIRROR
This is a remarkable and heart-warming true story of dedication, devotion and love, overriding normal barriers and allowing one young man to make extraordinary achievements with two dolphins, and to have close contact with many others.
There is a move afoot to classify whales and dolphins as non-human beings. That to kill them would be murder. This indicates the high intelligence, understanding and feelings that these animals have… they have a soul.
What David found through his love and understanding of dolphins was a natural means of communication. It was two way, and the dolphins wanted the contact, enabling them to learn quickly and enjoy the thrill of performing. To David this was just a natural way of doing things - as indeed it is to the animal kingdom - and David developed his telepathic communications and his psychic abilities through working so closely with these wonderful animals.
This is a moving story, beautifully told, carrying the reader effortlessly through the joys and heartbreaks of one young man’s selfless devotion as he struggles to bring out the best in his dolphins and achieve the impossible.
I read the book in one sitting and was often near to tears, but there was an overriding feeling of joy.
