I recommend this book for everyone, especially young women who have not yet found their niche in life. Jackie Parry's life story is a great example of possibility and personal courage. This book is great fodder for important mother-daughter talks . . . On the surface it's about building a life aboard a sailboat, but it's also very much about voyaging through life.
The thing that stood out most about this particular "sailing around the world" story was the route taken. This couple was not just sailing around the world in order to accomplish the feat. Although, of course, they had to plan and take into consideration the season and the local weather, they sailed to some very unlikely places. I was shocked that they were willing to venture into waters and countries with aggressive policies toward people (their own and visitors), and even into waters where pirates were a risk. Beyond that, they sailed routes I've never read about in other accounts of long-distance sailing. I was very glad I didn't know where they would head next, and enjoyed the surprises. So, no spoilers from me.
What a pleasure to read a great book, so well-written and so perfectly edited.
