What a wonderful book! I couldn't put it down. Very rarely do I read a book that has such an effect on me and this one certainly broke the mould. Debra's descriptive ability, not only in terms of the extraordinary surroundings she found herself in but also her depiction of the emotional rollercoaster she found herself on, will leave you speechless. The tale is one of battling against the odds and sometimes against her own better judgement - and definitely one you will be recommending to all your friends. A completely inspiring and motivating depiction of an adventure most of us only dream of and I class myself as very lucky to have been shown it in such an interesting and captivating way. All in all, a thoroughly good read - buy this book - you'll thank me for it!

having not followed the ward evens rowing challenge i only picked up this book because i myself am a rower. what i found in this book inspired me beyond my wildest dreams! this story is about an ordinary women having ordinary dreams but she sets out to acheive these dreams. The determinaton and courage she put through in this book are amazing and some of the things she encountered were unbelivable. This book isnt just for people who followed the ward evens rowing challenge, or for people interested in rowing, it is for those who are looking to be inspired by the amazing bravery of a women who could have given up at any time....

Sadly, I only cottoned on to Debra's extraordinary trip in it's final stages, so I was delighted to read her book. It starts with a little about her early life. The account of her relationship with her husband is a little cloying (I always wondered what sort of people leave their wedding reception in a hot air balloon) but frankly given subsequent events, she can be forgiven anything. Her decision to voyage solo after her husband was unable to continue is riveting and astounding. Literally battling against the odds, both mental and physical, on minimal sleep (she must regularly scan the horizon to prevent being run down by container ships). The beauty and magic of such a unique journey is truly awesome and the lighthearted moments balance it nicely - read it if only to discover how Woody, the ship's bear, makes it through the Tomato Soup Disaster Day!

Ok, but got a bit bored part way through as took a while to get going. Think there are other, much more exciting and better written books on the market. Still worth a read though.
