‘Love With a Chance of Drowning’ is published in July and follows Torre, A city girl with a morbid fear of deep water. She 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.
