Review

Casting Off is an autobiography as exciting as a novel; I couldn't put it down. Emma Bamford is a great writer who knows how to hook her reader. (Katie Fforde 2016-01-15)

an engaging tale...there is much fun to be had (The independent)

The feel-good, moving account of a young woman's love of the sea. (Charlotte Clay Daily Express 2014-07-11)

Wryly funny, fast-paced, with a good plot and tons of adventure, this entertaining debut would make a great holiday read ... part memoir, part travelogue, part romance. (Rebecca Wallersteiner The Lady 2014-07-11)

An inspiring and entertaining read about breaking free from the rat race and having the courage to chase your dreams. (Closer 2014-06-27)

a funny and inspiring story (Yachting Life)

An absorbing tale (Yachts & Yachting)

An accessible and appealing true-like tale. (Independent on Sunday)

Book Description

Sun, sea and gorgeous sailors - the route to happiness, surely? After an early-mid-life-crisis, Emma leaves her highly stressed, fast-paced life as a journalist on the Independent for a sailing adventure and finds that it is possible to find fulfillment - and love - on your own terms.
