"A spirited story of adventure. . . . Highly inspiring."--Kirkus, starred review It was an extraordinary dream fueled by hope and courage. Liz Fordred and her husband, Pete, both paralyzed and with no sailing experience, made the unlikely decision to build a boat, haul it 1,200 miles to the coast, and set sail alone to see the world. Their plan seemed impossible, the obstacles insurmountable. They had only time, the gift of laughter, an unstoppable resolve, and each other. After years of labor, their struggle to reclaim lives of purpose and adventure--lives lived without limits--launched them into the vast Atlantic. They had the whole world before them--and somewhere in it a new home and a new life were waiting to be claimed . . . Life is about how you respond to not only the challenges you're dealt but the challenges you seek. . . . If you have no goals, no mountains to climb, your soul dies."--Liz Fordred
