Format: Paperback / softback
What if your life partner's dream is your nightmare? Debra Ann Cantrell faced just that dilemma when her husband proposed living and cruising on a boat. She would lose a career she loved and, she feared, everything by which she'd defined herself. She wondered how others before her had made this decision, and what had happened to them, and decided to explore the process of life change by studying more than 100 women, over a five-year period whose partners had proposed the cruising life. Changing Course is the first decision-making guide written specifically for women considering leaving their careers friends, and everyday life to join their partners at sea, and it offers valuable guidance for anyone considering a major lifestyle change. This thought-provoking and highly personal book explores what women stand to gain when they set forth on such a journey - and what they stand to lose if they do not.
