Editorial Reviews

Review

Newlyweds Afloat is a love story between a woman, a man, and his boat. Felicia Schneiderhan recounts with humor and skill the story of her transformation from a Chicago apartment dweller to a newly married river rat on Chicago’s waterways. With an eye for the absurd, she reveals the ups and downs, joys and challenges, and day-to-day logistics of living aboard a 38-foot trawler named Mazurka―even in winter. Newlyweds Afloat is full of high-seas drama and flat water reflection plus cats and lots and lots of heart. I could not stop reading it.”
―Julie Buckles, author of Paddling to Winter

“Newlyweds Afloat is a wife’s story of learning to be the other woman, with a man who loves his boat. This detailed account takes an honest look at many of the difficulties of life aboard a trawler, and learning to love his boat as much as he does.”
―Ed Robinson, author of Leap of Faith: Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat

“You get drawn in because of her straightforward style. Won’t it be interesting to get hitched and live on a boat right away? Like marriage alone wasn’t a big enough life change. You get carried along into courtship and life on the water. It’s an adventure for the reader. Schneiderhan describes two transitions simultaneously: Single-life to married life, and landlubber to boat-dweller. You don’t even realize how much is happening at once. So, you’re reading and laughing and, whoa, wait a minute. That was a truth bomb. Suddenly, this book catches you by surprise and Schneiderhan makes some pretty courageous revelations. Sure the book is about relationships. And boats. And later about kids. You even come to see Mazurka as a character, and a sturdy one at that.”
Eric Chandler, author of Outside Duluth

“It is quite a story. How they kept their marriage alive during all of the liveaboard crises I cannot imagine, but the story is inspiring about the need for tradeoffs, because Felicia gives such a wonderful picture of the positives.”
Libby Hill, author of The Chicago River: A Natural and Unnatural History
