She and her partner answered the call of the sea. They wanted to heed to the sea breeze and sway to the wind. Such was the image of what would be expected of the sojourn. The reality was different. Marred with seasickness, a faulty water trap, uncooperative winds, and even loss of a crew member, Lin and Geoff were in for the ride of their lives. So many hurdles thrown into their plans and expectations. Frequently doubting their plans. Getting on each other’s nerves at some point. This is an outline of the journey from New Zealand to England. Wit an unexpected end, this story is one of a kind.
The author bares all. She does not leave even the bad parts untold. If you are going to tell a story, tell the whole of it. That is what Linda Ford has done. She has give the reader an in into her adventure. She provides a full dimensional image. Her passion for the sea is evident in her narration. However, she does not let her expertise boggle the reader’s mind. She tells her story in simple language. She even provides a glossary in the back which will come in handy. This book is immersive.
Linda has quite the writing skill. Her descriptions are quite vivid which is required for the many picturesque scenes that she sails into. The grammar is impeccable and just right. Her writing is chill, for lack of a better word. It does not burden the reader. It also does not try too hard to capture attention. The book is fairly short and can be read in one siting. From the minute one takes that walk home with Lin and Geoff, he or she will not leave until the adventure comes to an end. The author clearly knows how to capture and keep attention.
You know when you walk up to a group of people having a conversation and it takes you a little while to catch up? That is the feeling one might experience in the beginning. The first chapter sort of starts in the middle. It feels like there should have been something before that first chapter. However, you will catch on quickly and flow with the story. Another thing is the length. The chapters are really short. It can be appreciated that these are journal entries of sorts but it could not hurt to give some more. Immerse the reader further into the adventure. Perhaps this is brought on by the desire to have Lin and Geoff stay for a little longer.
Talk about bravery. Talk about going for it. This story is inspiring. It lights a fire in the belly. I mean if Lin and Geoff can stand against treacherous weather at sea for months with overlapping disappointments, surely no goal is too ambitious. This book will have you on the edge of your seat then it will have you off that seat going after whatever. The story is one big adventurous metaphor for the way to live life.
