What happens when the dream dies with a partner?
After 38 years of marriage, Peter and Glenora Doherty embarked on their life’s dream of sailing around the world on their own boat, Wanderlust V, which they built from a bare hull. However, less than three years into the voyage, Peter passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Glenora not only lost him, she lost her cruising lifestyle and her liveaboard home. Her dreams were shattered. She no longer knew who she was or where she was going.
This inspirational and uplifting book will provide practical and comforting advice to anyone who has lost a spouse, including how to survive grief, adjust to a totally new lifestyle, and to find hope and new dreams. It is the personal story of Glenora’s highs and lows after Peter’s death. In her grief, she suffered pain, guilt and anxiety, but God gave her the guidance, courage and strength to accept opportunities that led to new joys such as bringing her boat back home from Mexico, snorkeling over coral reefs, singing with an incredible show chorus and rediscovering her Christian faith. There are helpful “Steps to Survival” at the end of each chapter plus ideas for living alone safely and tips for dealing with lack of sleep.
Glenora often illustrates her voyage through grief by reflecting back on the joys and challenges of cruising under sail with Peter. And after his death, she recounts new adventures such as a successful but heavy weather crossing of the Sea of Cortes, preparing Wanderlust V for shipping back to Canada, serving a crew on an offshore voyage from New Caledonia to Australia, delightful family cruising in the Gulf Islands, and surviving a fire at sea.
