Love with a Chance of Drowning

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Love can make a person do crazy things . . .
A city girl with a morbid fear of deep water, Torre DeRoche is not someone you would ordinarily find adrift in the middle of the stormy Pacific aboard a leaky sailboat - total crew of two - struggling to keep an old boat, a new relationship and her floundering sanity afloat.
But when she meets Ivan, a handsome Argentinean man with a humble sailboat and a dream to set off exploring the world, Torre has to face a hard decision: watch the man she's in love with sail away forever, or head off on the watery journey with him. Suddenly the choice seems simple. She gives up her sophisticated city life, faces her fear of water (and tendency towards seasickness) and joins her lover on a year-long voyage across the Pacific.
Set against a backdrop of the world's most beautiful and remote destinations, Love with a Chance of Drowning is a sometimes hilarious, often moving and always brave memoir that proves there are some risks worth taking.
'A gripping romantic adventure - with laughs (and whales).' Maggie Alderson
'Hilarious ... recounts the adventure of a lifetime.' Vogue Australia
'My respect for Torre as a human being increased with each chapter. Torre is the living embodiment of my mantra, fear less, love more!' Huffington Post
'By turns gripping, laugh-out-loud funny, moving and uplifting ... Almost any reader with a sense of adventure or a desire to confront their fears should love it.' Australian Bookseller+Publisher

I have been waiting ages to read this book.
Torre is an amazing story teller.

Again, amazing but a true story.

Fantastic

She is an amazing storyteller and her journey was truly amazing.

Captivating story!

This was a fantastic read! I laughed, I cried, I learned things. Torre is an excellent storyteller - she painted both the places and the people so clearly. It was hard to put down!
