Sailing Down The Moonbeam

Sailing Down the Moonbeam is the tale of a New York career woman who decided there was more to life than high finance and a million frequent flier miles she would never have time to use.

In what seemed like an outrageous risk at age 40, she and her investment banker husband left family, friends and careers behind in favor of seeing the world from the deck of a sailboat. The three-year journey took her through uncharted waters – emotional as well as physical.

When the sailing voyage came to an unexpected end, she found the winds had blown her to a better place than she ever hoped to go.

Sailing Down the Moonbeam is a mid-life coming-of-age story, and speaks to positive benefits of stepping outside your comfort zone, even if you never leave your home or have never been on boat.


“Thank you for inviting us aboard for a journey steeped in beauty and excitement. One does not so much read this book as experience it.”

~ Mary Kay Shanley, author, Des Moines, Iowa
