Susan Cole, Author of “Holding Fast A Memoir of Sailing, Love and Loss” has written an intriguing memoir that reads almost like a book of fiction. This is one memoir that is loaded with adventure and information. The author has written a book about love, family, friends, and passion of fulfilling one’s dreams. The author, her husband and young daughter spend several years sailing and living. There are also some lovable pets.
Susan Cole’s husband had always dreamed of living on a boat and sailing the world. Susan wanted to see her husband’s dreams come true and compromised and accompanied him, although she had to take medication to prevent motion sickness. With their daughter they sailed for several years, home schooling and having worldly adventures. The author vividly describes storms, hurricanes, and damage to the boat/s.
The trials and tribulations at sea, could be symbolic of many of the trials and tribulations that one has in life. This is a well written story that I would recommend for other readers.
