Synopsis

Would you leave your job, sell your house, abandon your family and friends and move to France to live on a boat? With no income, and no idea what the next day would bring?

Probably not. But that's what Mike and Liz did, choosing to cast off from corporate life to live and travel the waterways of France.

They’re boarded by armed police, nearly lose their boat, and pull a near-drowned body from the water. With a blade against his neck, Mike’s fate rests on a soccer game, and he and Liz accuse a Frenchman of not knowing how to 'soil a bat'.

This is their adventure, a book for anyone who’s ever thought they might like to just get away from it all, throw caution to the wind and see what tomorrow feels like. It will take you to the limits, bring you down to earth, but most of all it will make you laugh out loud.

Join Mike and Liz, as they go sailing on a notion…
