Summary:

Juliet is failing to juggle motherhood and her stalled-out dissertation on confessional poetry when her husband, Michael, informs her that he wants to leave his job and buy a sailboat. With their two kids, Juliet and Michael set off for Panama, where their forty-four-foot sailboat awaits them. The initial result is transformative; their marriage is given a gust of energy, and the children quickly embrace the joys of being feral children at sea. Despite the stresses of being novice sailors with mounting debt, the family finds inspiration in attempting the impossible and in the ever-changing and awesome seascapes around them. -- adapted from dust jacket.
