"The Motion of the Ocean"

THE MOTION OF THE OCEAN: 1 Small Boat, 2 Average Lovers, and a Woman’s Search for the Meaning of Wife by Janna Cawrse Esarey is the true story of  a couple's 17,000-mile journey and their quest to resolve the uncertainties so many couples face. 

Janna and Graeme had a decade-long tango (together, apart, together, apart), they’re back in love, but the stress of nine-to-five is seriously hampering their happiness.  So they quit their jobs, tie the knot, and untie the lines on a beat-up old sailboat for a most unusual honeymoon: a two-year voyage across the Pacific.  Their goal is relaxation and relationship therapy—but the passage from First Date to First Mate is anything but smooth sailing.

How do you know if you’ve really found “The One?”  How do you balance commitment to others while preserving space for yourself?  And, when the waters get rough, do you abandon ship, or do you learn to navigate the world—together? 

Janna shared stories of their adventures from the rugged Pacific Northwest coast to the blue lagoons of Polynesia to the bustling ports of Asia, Janna and Graeme find themselves at the mercy of poachers, under the spell of cross-dressers, and under the gun of a less-than-sober tattooist.  Plus, they must share everything: rations of Top Ramen, sailboat sewage duty, a boat the size of a bedroom, and every minute of every day. 

You can meet Janna and find out more about their journey at her Book Signing at 7:30 tonight at Powell's located at 3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
