I read the book at my wifes request. Talked about it in another post. She has not followed up with another book to my knowledge.
That is a good thing because she continuously whined about EVERYTHING throughout the first book, yet refused to do anything about it.

For example, live on a boat all day, no job - don't bitch to me about mold - clean it!!!!!

And I just finished reading Dame Ellen's book before that.

A different perspective, to say the least!!!

Have your wife read that one !!

Well, if Rae Ellen is out there, I am SO hopeful she just finally up and went! I honeymooned in St John, then birthed a sailing idea myself, so I could relate. Gulf Stream crossings have given me my spankings, but I still keep going and loving it! But if I were up in those cold waters I just couldn't have!!!

YES she did.. I can't wait for the new book

I loved the book as well.. I am married to a man that has introduced me to sailing.. and has the dream of living and sailing abroad ... I picked this book up a few years ago.. and I really felt finally someone has experienced what I am experiencing.. I wrote an email to the publishers of the book and they sent my email to her directly. She has been working on her second book and I can't wait to read it.. Her life took a dramatic turn.. I can't wait to get all of the details..

here is her site.. she had a blog out there but I haven't found it again .. maybe she took it off since the book is coming out..

just do a search for raeellenlee dot com..
