"Every woman has authorship of her own epic story. From the moment
she begins her journey, she stands at the helm of her vessel. The waters
of life that she sails upon offer life-giving nourishment for her mind,
body and spirit. She may have to batten down the hatches of her ship
in preparation for restless seas, and extend her sails to greet the sky
during stormy times. While sailing upon the waters she will encounter
new lands, with foreign people and novel customs.

Women travelers, throughout their lives, have many opportunities
for adventures. This is a time in history when women are able to
pull up their anchors, and set out to see what life has to offer. When
a captain recognizes the abilities and potential of her own ship, she
is able to sail upon the seas with direction and purpose. The beacon
of light that helps women navigate their ships through darkness and
fog is found within. This book takes women on an incredible journey
into the light of the imagination, within the realm of metaphors, to
explore new definitions of self and the vessel that they travel within."
