Well, what can I say? Read it for yourself - you'll be charmed
The voyage ended up taking two years with farcical and sometimes tragic adventures at every turn. I read Spero in one sitting: the intrepid pluck of the two adventurers (some might call it chutzpah) is breathtaking. The pair are characters you begin to care about from the moment you meet them, and by the time it's all over they're old friends. An extraordinary adventure, painted in brilliant primary colours.
A bit of nostalgia for me having been there and done that.Like Ursula l was also thrown in at the deep end when it came to my first days navigating so this book really was a pleasure to read, all the memories of the galley and deck, good weather and bad came rushing back.
A good descriptive of life on and off the water with a bit of humour thrown in. Bet she has more to say about her time in Brazil....got the feeling she was keeping an awful lot "off the paper" To sum it up a good short travel the ocean and custom in to new shores read
I was fascinated from the first page and so admired their ability to enjoy such a spartan & uncomfortable way of life. Don't think I'd have had the courage even when young to do what they did but wish now that I had. Loved her frequent descriptions of the food they cooked and ate, I too love food & cooking but she performed culinary wonders in extremely adverse conditions, 'respect'.
This little book is also packed with her delightfully honest observations of how life is lived in some of the more fascinating places they dropped anchor at.
Loved it, just sorry it's finished.

Reminded me so much of a friend who is still living a similar lifestyle now in her sixties. Wish I had had the courage to be such a free spirit.Published 23 months ago by Micmac
