Description: Teen mother, architect, professor, businesswoman--Pat Henry knew a thing or two about survival. But when her once-successful business went bankrupt, she lost the will to begin again. Instead, she set sail with no money aboard her 31-foot Southern Cross on a journey through eight years, forty countries, and thirty thousand miles that would ultimately make her one of the first women--and the oldest--to sail around the world alone. Ahead lay new beginnings on exotic shores. But at sea, in a solitary circle of gales, slow miles, and overarching sky, she found by hesitant degrees a precious gift--the distance from which to reach peace with the choices and abandonments of a tumultuous life. Searingly honest, By the Grace of the Sea is for travelers, daughters, mothers, and seekers.
"A damn good book--it might even be a great book. . . . The way in which [Henry] tells her story is nothing less than extraordinary."--Sailing
"Henry's captivating account fills readers with admiration for her courage and stamina."--Booklist
"A powerful and compelling personal account of [Henry's] battle with the elements--plus inner and outer demons--while struggling to complete her solo journey around the world. What a book and what a woman!"--Willard Manus, author, This Way to Paradise
Her openness about her life should inspire others to make their own way in the world, however they define it. Her message resounds: If I can do this, anyone can."--Caribbean Compass
Additional info: Pat Henry (Puerto Vallarta, Mexico), a recipient of the Joshua Slocum Society International Golden Circle Award, has sailed 80,000 miles on small boats. She is a contributing writer to SAIL magazine.
