When a discontented career woman begins to question what life should really be about, she makes a courageous change that sets her adrift from financial and personal security. Moving from the west to the east coast of Australia, and then on to New Zealand, she searches for answers. But it is in the South Pacific, when she becomes part of the world of oceangoing yachts and the people who have made the sea their home, that she finally finds what she is looking for. In this adventurous but somewhat dangerous world, maintaining her place sets new challenges, and she almost loses everything she has gained. Afloat and Adrift is a journey of inner resolution, life contemplation and interpersonal discovery peppered with conflict and romance.
