From the Back Cover
The heart-stopping memoir—now a major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin—about love, loss, and survival on the high seas
Young and in love, their lives ahead of them, Tami Oldham and her fiancé, Richard Sharp, set sail from Tahiti under brilliant blue skies, with Tami’s hometown of San Diego as their ultimate destination. But less than two weeks into their voyage, disaster struck. Despite their best efforts to steer clear of an approaching hurricane, they became trapped in the storm’s path and found themselves battling pounding rain, waves the size of skyscrapers, and 140-knot winds. Richard tethered himself to the boat and sent Tami below to safety, and then all went eerily quiet. Tami’s last memory was her fiancé’s scream, followed by darkness. She awoke hours later, alone, venturing on deck to discover only Richard’s safety line, the clasp meant to hold him broken.
Adrift is a tale of love and survival on the high seas—an unforgettable story about resilience of the human spirit, and the transcendent power of love.

I had family members who fished tuna and albacore and didn't return until they had a full catch. This was before GPS so the use of the sextant and constellations was critical. Her story taught me a whole new vocabulary. The loss of her fiance was heartbreaking but her dialogue with her Voice was was inspirational. I seem to read about these super human stories like the Sydney to Hobart race and the Everest disaster, absolutely captivated by how individuals venture out beyond what is safe. I stand in awe.
A great read.
