"Carole's book S.A.I.L. showcases the resiliency and adaptability needed to tackle the unpredictable nature of the sea and draws powerful parallels to the challenges faced in our everyday lives. Through her journey from being a novice to mastering the art of sailing a 20-ton boat, in addition to figuring out her own health issues, she serves as a beacon of strength and empowerment. Her realizations about her own capabilities, reflected in her writings, inspire readers to confront their fears and embrace challenges, whether on open waters or in the confines of their homes. A truly uplifting and empowering writer (and human being).” -Carolyn Delaney, Publisher, Journey Magazine

"Another hit! Reading this, the second in the series, inspired me to re-read the first one! The author's stories are incredible. I'm glad I am not actually going through these things with her and that I just get to be entertained by her recollection of experiences - not sure how she did it! I also like the tips she gives at the end of the chapters - they are simple yet effective! Looking forward to #3!" - Kris P.

"What a treasure trove of sailing adventures mixed with a moving and inspiring personal journey healing from chronic disease. I took my time reading them, pausing to contemplate the special introspective sections. They certainly challenge one to lead a more purposeful life." - Roy Eaton


5.0 out of 5 stars Great read

“This book is fantastic, not only is it a great story but it also has great suggestions and lessons on how to better your life. I read it in two days and enjoyed every page. Great read.” - Dave S.


"A true-life story about a couple that made the decision to dramatically change their lives by buying, then moving aboard, a sailboat. Carole’s “life lesson” is to simplify your values, and this book is an excellent example of how. Choosing to sail above the clouds is not a dreamer’s quest; it is a survival skill." –Latitudes and Attitudes Magazine


"Carole's book does a fantastic job of inspiring people to live a fulfilled life...I highly suggest it to our readers." –Mike Desimon, SAIL JUNKY Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars - Great story, great book, a must read."I read this book in two days, couldn’t put it down. It is so well written and a great story. You will probably recognize yourself in some of the stories. It is a must read for every woman and probably most men. Written by a strong woman who takes life’s negatives turns them around and uses them to help others. Quite the life so far, Bravo." - Danielle Boulay

5.0 out of 5 stars - Every part of this book resonates!

"Oh boy! What a book for our times! Everything in it resonates with me. I have been on a path of self-discovery and self-growth for the last 6 years. What a time of learning and healing! And this book works right into that: I was so eager to do (and did) all the exercises because I have already learned what a boon this work on self-awareness can be. Also, my dream (that I'm working on with all my heart) is to become a cruiser - to travel, explore, and adventure by sailboat. Carole's book encompasses everything important to me. Thank you, and I can't wait for the next one! <3 " - Susan Crowe

5.0 out of 5 stars - Messages of simplicity and inner growth.

"This book seemed to come into my life at just the right time. The messages of simplicity and self-help exercises at the end of each delightfully addicting chapter, was just what I needed. As I venture into a new and unknown part of myself at 54. Thank you Carole for your honesty and openness into your private life. I laughed and cried openly. Looking forward to your next novella." Kym P.

5.0 out of 5 stars - A work of inspiration and knowledge
"This book was a joy to read. A series of short stories that convey the author's struggles and triumphs and leaves you with the realization that anything in life is possible if you listen to your heart and use your wits. Also included at the end of each chapter are words of wisdom and advice with tools to guide you to reach a better place of contentment. I especially liked the chapter on getting rid of material things, a personal ongoing struggle. Highly recommend. MAB" -Wizard

5.0 out of 5 stars - Humor, truth, and lessons, oh my!

"Relatable and inspirational—this book made me want to keep reading! I already want to reread it and take more time to do the exercises at the end of each chapter. What a life of adventure, trials and tribulations these folks went through. I especially appreciate her ability to find a positive lesson in it all. Oh, and the humor, honesty, and transparency were so refreshing. I found myself smiling a lot while reading...I loved it!" -Kris P.

​5.0 out of 5 stars - Light-Hearted Seriousness

“LIGHT-HEARTED SERIOUSNESS! Using stories and humor, Carole shares with us her journey of growth. And because so we can relate to so many of her experiences (yup - been there done that, or something similar) she helps us sail through our own journey. The self-inquiry questions and suggested exercises at the end of each chapter encourage us to simplify areas of our own lives. The book REALLY needs to be read twice. Once for the sheer joy, entertainment and a second time to apply all the nuggets of wisdom. Can't wait to see what the second book, 'Align', has in store for us.” –Jan T.

5.0 out of 5 stars - Great read for anyone who’s looking to be inspired!
