Valerie Perez was primed for adventure. After completing her time as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Micronesia, she met Shep, captain of the seagoing sailboat, Cosmic Muffin. The landlubber and the sailor gave in to their passions and struck out together on an extended voyage to Hawaii and, ultimately, to Shep's home in California. In this delightful and compelling memoir, Valerie tells the story of falling in love with a man who eschews commitment, and spending months at sea enduring a relationship that runs as hot and cold as the Pacific currents. What stirs the reader's heart in this very forthright memoir is the author's growth, specifically her ability to come to terms with the truth about this relationship. . .and her relationship to God. Ultimately, Perez comes to understand that what really matters in life is self-respect, the ability to confront adversity, appreciating love and friendship in all their permutations, and an honest relationship with God.
