Sea Dreams

I've always been fascinated by all things nautical - especially sea chanteys and mysterious tales. One of my secret dreams is to live in a small port on a remote coastline or even on an island where I could walk my hound every morning to the beach where we would watch the various ships and boats sail by and wonder where they were coming from, where they were going.

Another secret dream is to book passage on an Irish tramp steamer that sails around the world, to anywhere cargo needs to be. On such a voyage, you don't know from port to port where you're going next. It all depends on what needs to be brought where...wine from Italy to New Orleans, where bales of raw cotton are to be shipped to Thailand, where finished clothing is destined for London or Paris. So, depending on the next destination, it might be weeks, months, even years before you return home again. Imagine the thrill, the adventure, the mystery of not knowing where you’re going next – not to mention all that time at sea to read and write and just be...

Okay, couple these two dreams with my recent penchant for an occasional really good mystery, and you've got the perfect formula for reading Valerie Martin's latest historical mystery, The Ghost of the Mary Celeste . This haunting and moving novel captured my heart and mind last week, dredging up from the depths my secret dreams of being close to, if not on the sea.

Please voyage on over to my review at www.authorexposure.com and see why.
