Having read "Rowed Trip,"co-authored by Julie Angus I looked forward to reading "Rowboat in a Hurricane." I was not disappointed; she writes in a matter of fact style that transports the reader into a small rowboat under all the changing moods of the restless ocean.This book is not just about a couple's challenges of living in cramped togetherness enduring horrifying storms and relentless physical effort.It leaves one with a deep understanding of the problems facing the troubled ecosystem which is the modern-day ocean.

I was riveted from moment go. I have read many adventure books as I love to travel. I like to be taken places that I would never dare go myself and Julie does this to the T. As I read I felt that I was right there in that rowboat with her. Way to go Julie! As a true adventurer and a great writer!

It is quite the adventure. It kept my interest from beginning to end.
If you ever think of doing something this challenging, you should read this book first. It might change your mind.

Spirited adventure story March 17 2009
By M. Hearnden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read lots of global travel/adventure stories and this one rates very high! Julie's writing is very fluid and captivates from the opening pages. She expertly weaves the story of how she quit her secure day job to set out on an expedition with her fiance - in a tiny rowboat, battling hurricanes as they pull on oars and slowly make their way across the Atlantic ocean. I especially liked the descriptions of what it felt like to be alone on the seas, surrounded by the beauty of nature and marine life, and her observant descriptions of how the oceans are being influenced by climate change.

Not your average travelogue March 17 2009
By M Fechete - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Julie writes about her decision to become the first woman to rowe across the Atlantic ocean, the preparations involved and her choice of a rowing partner, who ultimately ends up being her adventurer fiance.
The thoroughly researched information about the ocean's flora and fauna and their run ins with various creatures along the way is most interesting.
Julie's brisk style made me read this book from cover to cover almost without stopping, and I would have loved to read on about the next step of their journey, the cycling from Costa Rica to Vancouver.
I appreciated her honesty about the hardships of life on a rowboat, and the doubts and fears she encountered along the journey.

Highly recommended March 30 2009
By Godo Stoyke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A great story, and an interesting counterpoint and companion to Colin's "Beyond the Horizon", kind of like Don Starkell's "Paddle to the Arctic" and Victoria Jason's "Kabloona in the Yellow Kayak" (except that here the protagonists actually like each other a lot) ... :-)

Godo, author, "The Carbon Charter"
