'The story of how DeRoche overcame her fears, her self-deprecating humour and her way with words would have been enough to make this a great story. The fact her Argentinian boyfriend combines the passion of a Latin lover with the grit and spirit of a Scandinavian seafarer makes this book a Hollywood dream come true.'

(The Sydney Morning Herald)

'Follow the story of self-styled fearful adventurer Torre DeRoche as she embarks on a year-long voyage across the Pacific'

(National Geographic Traveller (UK edition))

'In Love With a Chance of Drowning, Torre DeRoche has given reluctant adventurers, romantics, and lovers of beautifully-told tales a compulsively good read. I was positively swept away by this large-hearted, hilarious story about how deeply and unexpectedly a person can be transformed by love.'

(Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch)

'A funny, irresistibly offbeat tale about the risks and rewards of living, and loving, with an open heart.'


'Hilarious ... recounts the adventure of a lifetime.'

(Vogue Australia)

'By turns gripping, laugh-out-loud funny, moving and uplifting... Almost any reader with a sense of adventure or a desire to confront their fears should love it.'

(Australian Bookseller & Publisher)

'Wow, what a book. Exciting. Dramatic. Honest.'

(Australian Associated Press)

'DeRoche has penned such a beautiful, thrilling story you'll have to remind yourself it's not fiction. Her language is effortless.'

(Courier Mail)

'I was hooked from page one! Love with a Chance of Drowning is an epic tale of love and fortitude that will thrill its readers. Torre is a natural storyteller with a knack for extracting the dramatic, comedic and romantic from every incident. An incredible journey, both literal and metaphorical - it will sweep you away. ... fresh, funny and exhilarating.'

(Veronica Henry, author of The Long Weekend)

'I loved this book. With a great deal of humour, Torre takes the reader on a sometimes terrifying, always entertaining trip into the high seas. An inspiring read about facing your worst fears - in this case, deep oceans, sharks and falling overboard.'

(Karen Wheeler, author of Tout Sweet)

Reseña del editor:

Love can make a person do crazy things. . .

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 breathtakingly brave memoir that proves there are some risks worth taking.
