Australian native Torre DeRoche has just moved to the U.S. for a year-long stay when she meets a handsome Argentinean who sweeps her off her feet. The problem? He’s getting ready to leave to follow his life-long dream of sailing his own boat around the world. Torre has always hated the ocean and is terrified of being in a little boat in a big sea. And she barely knows this guy—or anything at all about sailing. But as she falls deeper and deeper in love she realizes the only way to keep the man of her dreams is to embark on the voyage of her nightmares, so she waves goodbye to dry land and braces for a life-changing roller coaster ride that is as exhilarating as it is terrifying. This sometimes hilarious, often moving, and always breathtakingly brave memoir is set against a backdrop of the world’s most beautiful and remote destinations. Part love story, part travel memoir, LOVE WITH A CHANCE OF DROWNING is witty, charming, and proof positive that there are some risks worth taking.
