This beautiful book, written by Joan Anderson, was recommended by a friend of mine and I absolutely adored it! If you are looking for a book that inspires you to open your mind and continue on your journey, you should pick this one up. Joan, voice of the story, finds herself at a crossroads when her children are all grown up and she has drifted from her husband. When her husband announces that he was offered a job in a new state, Joan decides to take a leap. She finds herself at the family cottage, by herself, with nothing but what she could fit in her car and what is already at her destination.
During the year at sea, Joan explores all the parts of herself that she had suppressed over the years and falls in love with herself again. I read this story in two days and had a hard time putting it down! Joan is someone who mothers and women of all ages can relate to, someone looking to find herself and what she really wants for her life. You will not regret reading this wonderful story!
