Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Most of the story is not written by Tere (she changed her name)but, by a dear friend and psychologist, Richard Logan. It includes newspaper accounts, the logs from the Coast Guard, and interviews with crew members of the rescue vessel, as well as biographical information from those who knew the man who murdered her family at sea. Well-researched, it also has interviews with police, family members, the Bahamian authorities, and others relevant to rounding out the story. Time frames and theories are there, too.
Tere's inner strength helped her survive as a child on that ill-fated sailboat trip and her four days alone and adrift in the ocean. Smooth sailing is definitely not the metaphor for her life. It's satisfying to know that her life is finally blessed with happiness and peace--and now we know the rest of the story.
