About this title


After two failed marriages, forty-eight-year-old Rosie Atkisson struggles through the painful process of rebuilding her life with her husband, Jesse, in Southern California. But the settled rhythm of her newfound comfort is interrupted by a tug in her heart when she encounters a haunting photo of another aging lady, the World War II vessel MS Restoration. A special mission to transport Russian Jews from Sochi, Russia, to Haifa, Israel, means an adventure of a lifetime; does she dare pass up this dangerous assignment that will take her thousands of miles from her family and comfortable life? In spite of her fear of water and the unknown condition of the ship, Rosie thinks this might be the opportunity she's been waiting for to serve God. After surviving fourteen months on board the old ship-from a hurricane to a heart attack, from miracles to menopause, and now being held at gunpoint in the Haifa harbor-Rosie wonders if she will ever return to her own safe harbor.

From the Author:

Several years after returning home from volunteering on the WWII ship Restoration in 1995, I felt there was a story I had to tell...not only about the crew, the volunteers, and the purpose of the old World War II ship, but about the ship's full story, from her beginnings in World War II up until her majestic make-over and voyage from Seattle, Washington to Europe, Scandinavia, Greece, Russia, and Israel.  I share  how God took the old ship out of 'moth balls'  and transformed a forgotten, deteriorated vessel into a beautiful ship of miracles.  If God can do that for a ship, how much more can He do with our lives? My hope is that every reader will find faith for their forgotten dreams.  Remember, you cannot discover new oceans until you are willing to lose sight of the shore.  Oceans of blessings and happy sailing!
