When Jennifer Silva married Russel Redmond, they decided to spend a year at sea, sailing in Mexico. The honeymoon tested their new relationship, not just through rocky waters and unexpected weather, but in the ways that living on a twenty-six-foot sailboat makes one reconsider what’s truly important. In this charming, meditative memoir, Jennifer recounts that first fateful year they spent at sea, moving back and forth through the waves of her life.

On their first voyage, the couple sailed Watchfire to Baja’s Sea of Cortez, where they spent a year before sailing south along Mexico and Central America and through the Panama Canal. Jennifer’s unique experience on the boat weaves back and forth through time as she explores the events that led her to taking the first step onto the boat—from her childhood to the time she spent as a struggling actor in New York.

Praise for Honeymoon at Sea:

“As she works on being fluent in Spanish and in the language of love and independence, Redmond finds she is growing into her prowess as a writer and a sailor alike. She brings her readers along for an unexpected foray into new experiences that will especially delight armchair travellers interested in stories of living simpler lives and experiencing such riches.”
— Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review
