Wendy Hinman is excited to share her new book, Sea Trials, at Eagle Harbor Book Company
Thursday May 4, 7pm
Veteran voyager Wendy Hinman, the author of laugh-out-loud award-winning memoir Tightwads on the Loose, shares another true story of adventure and the stubbornness of dreams. Sea Trials is the timeless story of a family and their struggle to finish what they started. Follow the daunting challenges they face and get a glimpse of the fascinating cultures they encounter in a story with enough levity to keep readers of all ages hooked to a suspenseful, satisfying ending.
A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family. With years invested in saving money, preparing the boat, and learning to navigate by the stars, parents Chuck and Dawn refuse to give up. Fourteen-year-old Garth is determined to continue, while eleven-year-old Linda never wanted to go in the first place. Can they overcome the emotional, physical and financial challenges to transform from castaways into circumnavigators?
*Selected as a Kirkus Book of the Month.
