With the threat of terrorism and piracy on the high seas, fewer sailors are completing a circumnavigation of the globe. Lois and Gunter Hofmann achieved their eight-year, 34,000 mile nautical triumph after turning 60 years old. In this second book of the nautical trilogy, "In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss," the couple faces adversity, but gains renewal and reward. Join them aboard their 43-foot Catana catamaran, Pacific Bliss, as they sail from San Diego to Australia, continuing their challenging but fulfilling circumnavigation. Lois Joy Hofmann’s books offer something for everyone. From retirees and those dreaming about retirement, to boat owners, sailors, adventurers, travelers, geography buffs, and armchair sailors alike, Hofmann gives the reader “slice of life” moments through her compelling stories and captivating photos. Hofmann writes in a first-person style as if she is on location sending stories from the front in real time. Stories often begin with the date, location, and—for the nautical buffs—latitude and longitude.

She explains what forgiveness is in such a way that she exposes the misconceptions that have been held about it for years! I would recommend this book to everyone, whether you are struggling with forgiveness issues or not. She also provides a lot of references in the back of the book for people struggling in other areas.
You will not be sorry if you purchase this book!!
Later that day I found out she had written the first of her three books about sailing the world "Maiden Voyage". Eagerly I purchased this beautiful book, and read it with tears in my eyes. We had similar backgrounds and I hope the same continues, as we too hope to sail the world. Her stories are engaging, of the many places they visited and people they met. I pictured myself in her situations, how would I do as a sailor? The photography throughout the two books are bright, colorful and so beautiful. As an Artist I really appreciate the visuals!
When she announced her second book about the Sailing the South Pacific "In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss" was available, I was first in line to purchase it. This book is as facinating and full of adventure as her first book "Maiden Voyage". We are eager for her third book to be out, about the last segment of their voyage. I highly recommend her books and writing style to everyone, whether you plan to follow in their footsteps or stay on land. You'll experience the adventure of traveling the world through Gunther & Lois's eyes. What an accomplishment, a true story that will captivate your imagination!
A must read if you have been hurt and want it to go away.
