In 2003, casting their fortunesa€”and their livesa€”to the wind, the Ellison family embarked on what they thought would be a one-year voyage on their forty-seven-foot sloop, Promise. Five years and more than 25, 000 nautical miles later, the family of four returned to the United States and dry land. In this memoir, authorAlex Ellisonchronicles his familya€™s adventures on the seas. Culled from a detailed daily journal that Ellison began keeping at the onset of the voyage when he was just eight years old, A Star to Sail Her Byreveals his transition from enthusiastic child to capable sailor and reflective young adult.
