In Rowing the Atlantic we are brought on board when Savage's dreams of feasts are nourished by yet another freeze-dried meal. When her gloves wear through to her blistered hands. When her headlamp is the only light on a pitch-black night ocean that extends indefinitely in all directions. When, one by one, all four of her oars break. When her satellite communication fails. Stroke by stroke, Savage discovers there is so much more to life than a fancy sports car and a power-suit job. Flashing back to key moments from her life before rowing, she describes the bolt from the blue that first inspired her to row across oceans and how this crazy idea evolved from a dream into a tendinitis-inducing reality. And finally, Savage discovers in the rough waters of the Atlantic the kind of happiness we all hope to find.

As gripping as it is insightful!
On top of being an excellent story-teller and narrator, Roz Savage never failed to paint her account with the nuanced brush strokes only someone who'd actually lived the adventure could do. I marveled at her powers of description, not just of the row itself, but of her self-discovery throughout the endeavor.
This book is at once entertaining, inspiring, insightful, and thought-provoking without being weighty or preachy.
A wonderful read!!
