Win a copy of By the Light of the Moon by Bernadette Marama Gavin

Updated: Jun 20, 2019

When Bernadette Marama Gavin accepts an invitation to join a solo sailor on his quest to circumnavigate the globe on a small sailboat, she has no idea how deeply it will impact her life. Sailing more than 28,000 nautical miles over four years, the countless hours being alone demand immense endurance. Bernadette finds exquisite beauty on the boundless ocean, but also fear, frustration and fatigue, bringing her to the thresholds of her own inner impasses.

Thirteen years later, through a process of self-reflective writing as a therapeutic way to revisit her past, Bernadette begins piecing together fallen aspects of herself, not only belonging to the young woman lost at sea years ago, but also of the wounded child. It is here that she makes an unforeseen discovery, one that sheds light on her past and holds the key to forever shape her future.
