Good Morning Diego Garcia: AJourney Of Discovery is a true to life travel account by author SusanJoyce, in which she recollects her experiences. The second book in theJourneys series, this adventure follows The Lullaby Illusion, picking up as Susan and her husband Charles are presented with an exciting newopportunity in Asia. A sailboat intends to travel from Sri Lanka acrossthe Indian Ocean towards Egypt, and Charles persuades Susan that it'd be a fabulous adventure for them to be part of its crew. Disaster strikesfrom day one as India goes into a state of national emergency, andmonsoon season begins no sooner than the boat is out on the ocean. Whatfollows is a real story of survival against the elements and, arguably,the even more tempestuous path of Susan and Charles' marriage.

What I enjoyed most about Susan Joyce's memoir was her choice to present it in the style of a novel. Though written in the first person, GoodMorning Diego Garcia: A Journey Of Discovery has all the readability,flowing dialogue, and narrative charm of a great work of fiction, whichmakes it all the more incredible that the adventures, heartbreaks, andinspirational moments within its pages are true. Susan is a loving andopen woman whom readers can really connect to and, though her stormyseas adventures were genuinely thrilling, I found myself even moreenveloped in the emotional journey she undertakes whilst the world goeshalf mad around her. Overall, I believe that anyone would find something appealing and uplifting in this memoir, and I highly recommend it.

Good Morning DiegoGarcia: A Journey of Discovery, Journeys Book 2 is a non-fiction travelmemoir written by Susan Joyce. Joyce and her husband, Charles, wereplanning on writing a book together detailing their experiences in andescape from Cyprus during the coup and war of 1974. They were currentlystaying in a rental home in Ojai, California for this new joint projectwhen they received a letter from friends of theirs; Dylan, an Englishboat captain, and his Israeli girlfriend, Mia. When Susan and Charlesknew them, they had been living on a Swedish millionaire's yacht. Theywould be sailing the Swede's newest sailboat across the Indian Oceanfrom the tip of Sri Lanka down to Seychelles and then through the SuezCanal, and they invited Susan and Charles to crew with them. It would be an adventure of a lifetime, Charles had thought, but Susan, anon-swimmer, was not quite sure. In any event, they were soon on theirway to India, their first port of call.

Susan Joyce's non-fictiontravel memoir, Good Morning Diego Garcia: A Journey of Discovery,Journeys Book 2, is such an exciting and eventful tale that I often hadto check and see that it was indeed not an adventure novel, but a truestory. I enjoyed the author's detailed accounts of places where she andher husband stayed in India, and found myself getting hungry each timeshe described the marvelous meals they enjoyed throughout theiradventure. The portion of her memoir that deals with the actual voyageacross the Indian Ocean is superb. I could see the gigantic swellstossing the sailboat around and the waterspouts appearing in thedistance, and I was fascinated by the different ways each of the sailors dealt with the continual battering by the ocean and the ever-presentpossibility that their boat would sink. Good Morning Diego Garcia iswell-written, and the author's conversational style makes it quite easyto get wrapped up in her tale. It's highly recommended.
