The Last Island | a novel

A universal tale of escape, love and redemption.

A Boston fireman, in an attempt to flee personal and professional tragedy, accepts a job as a bartender on a Greek island. In an isolated cove, he meets Kerryn, an animal rights activist who believes dolphins possess consciousness, intelligence and souls. Kerryn enjoys an extraordinary and personal relationship with a dolphin and is waging a covert war to stop the local fishermen from using illegal nets that not only deplete the sea of fish but also take dolphins’ lives. The fireman is pulled into this conflict as his relationship with Kerryn deepens. But Kerryn’s passion and convictions lead her to make a fatal decision that changes the island and both their lives forever.

“The novel’s emotional landscape and its themes of environmentalism, animal rights, and the costs of capitalism make The Last Island both timely and timeless.”

‘The Last Island’ is published by Betimes Books, Dublin, Ireland

    1. Thanks for your interest, Yvonne. Unfortunately, the book is not yet available in a Nook version. Not sure what the publisher’s plans are in that regard. (I’ll have to check.) The book is available on B&N as a paperback, as well as on Amazon (Kindle too) and Book Depository.


  1. David–As you know, I loved your book. And I’ve found the perfect artist to illustrate some future work featuring Kerryn! Elise Engler who did a series of drawings called “Everything I Own.” For Kerryn, this would be an afternoon’s work! Thought of you and her at once.
