Why I HIGHLY recommend Robin's SECOND book!!

Special thanks 2 camaraderie for letting folks know the sequel to the unique and valuable lives of this couple, Robin and Patty. For those folks who have an interest in the people themselves who become sailing heros rather than just the herosim itself, I would highly highly recommend finding a used copy of Robin's second book "Home Is The Sailor" (hope that's right, close anyway). I found this book as much or more captivating than the first, although people who get overly uptight about others who love their religion very openly might get a little turned-off (sad). It was for me every bit as incredible a journey as Robins' first one; having lived a similar lifestyle myself. The book recounts their voyage as a young couple, their new marriage and family and the rugged farmsteading back-to-the-land subsistence lifestyle they choose, fought for, overcame troubles and obstacles for; kept their love for each other and prevailed.
The best thing about these folks is their humility and sharing with others of their blessings; AND that their love at first sight became that increasingly rare of more needed events -- ONE MARRIAGE. I wrote for an autographed copy of their book explaining I was hoping to inspire my daughter about holding out to struggle for true lifetime commitment and the example they provided. They not only autographed the copy but wrote the sweetest personal note as well to my daughter on the cover page -- both of them. G-d bless these two beautiful people.

Yeah, I read about their missionary work a few years ago.

Too bad, I used to admire them.
