This book is for everyone who dreams of finding a soul mate, ditching a job, and sailing off into the sunset-or for those more practical types who'd rather just read about it!
A woman falls in love with a charismatic free spirit. When he invites her to realize a lifelong dream of sailing across the Pacific, she heeds the call of romance, throws caution to the wind and leaves her well-established career behind. The story of an imperfect romance on a crowded sailboat unfolds as the four-person crew sails among the beautiful, isolated islands of the South Pacific.
The Marquesas, Tuamotos, and Society Islands of French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, American Samoa, Samoa, Fiji and New Zealand are the landfalls you'll discover along the way.
But that's not all! The story moves to the west coast of America and Mexico as the two sailors re-adjust to life on land. Will their love affair survive? Just when it seems it might, an unexpected development throws everything into question.
Carol Ryan always wanted to be an anthropologist and/or travel writer, but to actually earn a living she decided on a career in Information Technology. She pursued her other interests by traveling extensively whenever possible. One of her last traveling adventures is the basis for her memoir, Right Now Is Perfect. That story concludes with an unexpected diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis and the impact of progressing disability. She lives in Northern California with her faithful companion, Napoleon.
