This inspirational story is told through Betty's eyes as she learns her soon-to-be husband almost dies and upon a near miraculous recovery sets out to sail around the world in his 65? ketch. He holds her to her promise to make the journey with him, even though she is less than enthusiastic about it. With seven people on board, and Betty being the only woman, ?On the Winds of Destiny? is her story of their amazing 3-year journey around the world. Betty's will is tested as she and their crew survive 20-foot seas or freighters that nearly capsize Destiny, squalls and hurricane force winds, the long days at sea, and Betty's never ending battle with seasickness. ?On the Winds of Destiny? is a work of passion, determination, human spirit and man's desire to conquer his fears and Mother Nature.

On The Winds Of Destiny is a trilling, adventurous true story. That is bound to be a best seller, already on one book review list, and expected to make many more. This story has great possibilities for a movie.From the Author:
I lived this story and felt helpless and in a different world when I first went out to sea. I almost jumped ship several times, but I had given my word and loved Bob deeply. Little by little I adapted and became stronger, able to control my emotions and handle the boat. I stood my watch each day and was on night watch when a frieghter came sweeping down on us. I found out that you can do anything and adjust to almost anything if you have determination. I am a stronger more understanding person now, and can handle almost any situation.
