If you are looking for a wonderful book to read, I really recommend this one.
It is written by a Louisville woman, a friend of mine, who was the first American, man or woman, to row across the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, ROW! In a rowboat!
But it is much more than a very engaging adventure story. It is a story with sensitivity and heart. It is very well written, and very inspiring.
It would be a wonderful graduation present, especially for a young woman graduate. It has many humorous vignettes, as well as capturing moments that take your breath away.
