SUSAN COLE'S WRITING

Holding Fast: A Memoir of Sailing, Love, and Loss

Many people dream of escaping reality and sailing away but few actually go. Blond, blue-eyed, irreverent John bursts into Susan’s life in her twenties dreaming of sailing off. Susan dreams of settling down and doesn't want to go. A three-year voyage with their young daughter profoundly changes their lives. A gripping sailing story and an inspirational memoir for women.
