After forty-four hours clinging to an overturned dinghy in the icy seawater, her back broken and her skull fractured, Judith miraculously survived.
Gripping, unbelievable, yet true, Judith Sleavin's remarkable story of courage, survival, and retribution is alternately heartrending and uplifting. Making headlines around the world, it is also the story of unbreakable bonds, shattering loss, and one remarkable woman reborn through the strength of friendship and the profound love of strangers who became family.« less

I liked this book.It told the story of the family that wanted to sail around the world and the tragic event that happened to them. It was well written and of course sad as to what happened to them. Very well worth the read.
Chilling memoir of a terrible modern day family tragedy. I'm so glad I read this book. It taught me a lot about boats and sailing, and opened up a new world to me. I will never forget Judith's dear family.
