Love With A Chance Of Drowning: A Memoir

Synopsis

A city girl with a morbid fear of deep water, Torre DeRoche is not someone you would ordinarily find adrift in the middle of the stormy Pacific aboard a leaky sailboat - total crew of two - struggling to keep an old boat, a new relationship and her floundering sanity afloat. But when she meets Ivan, a handsome Argentinean man with a humble sailboat and a dream to set off exploring the world, Torre has to face a hard decision: watch the man she's in love with sail away forever, or head off on the watery journey with him. Suddenly the choice seems simple. She gives up her sophisticated city life, faces her fear of water (and tendency towards seasickness) and joins her lover on a year-long voyage across the Pacific. Set against a backdrop of the world's most beautiful and remote destinations, Love with a Chance of Drowning is a sometimes hilarious, often moving and always brave memoir that proves there are some risks worth taking.

    Feel good story

    27/02/2013

    We chose Love with a Chance of Drowning this month as our Book of the Month as we loved this fantastic story of an Australian girl that abandoned everything for the surprise love that came her way. Its really going to appeal to those that love these armchair reads of adventure and love like Eat Pray Love. She was scared of the water but fell deeply in love with a sailor whose dream was to sail around the world! There is a whole lot of laughter in this book and the places she visits and describes are beautiful and exotic. Life on the boat is tough but Torre writes with a lot of passion and its a feel good story that will leave you thinking about all the things you could be doing!

Love with a Chance of Drowning - Torre De Roche


Chapter one

A beam of morning sun pierces my closed eyelids and draws me from the dark depths of a hangover. Memories race in from last night.
'I'll have a dirty martini.' What was I thinking? I scorn myself as the bass amp is turned up in my head, reverberating through the soft tissue of my brain. But I have worse things to worry about right now than a hangover. Like the fact that I've just woken up in a stranger's bed. Naked. more...
