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.

This book was alright. Some parts were very touching and somewhat interesting and others were boring and drawn out. Maybe if I had an interest in sailing and all the nautical stuff my rating might be different. I skimmed through a good part of this book just to get to the interesting parts. My heart goes out to Judith and she is an amazing woman to survive her ordeal.
