A friend of mine gave me this book to read, and when I saw that it involved sailing I have to be honest : I inwardly groaned. I am not the audience for this kind of book. Even so, I read it and am so glad I did. There was a lot to enjoy! Part travelogue, part memoir, part craziness (they sailed around the world without actually knowing how to sail!) Sailing to Jessica holds nothing back. Not only are Kelly and Paul on the ride of their life in their sailboat, their relationship and desire to build a family has as many ups and downs as a Pacific storm. They are maddening, touching, and brave. We cringe, we bite our nails, we cry and we laugh. A book about the human spirit, luck, fate and the things we do with our backs to the wall.
