Malia Bohlin talks about her new book Left at Hiva Oa
This captivating tale takes place on the open ocean as two proud Merchant Marine Academy graduates leave their promising careers to follow a dream of sailing the world on the 40’ schooner the Gracias.
Even with careful planning and abundant enthusiasm, things go drastically awry, changing plans, the crew, and eventually the course of the Gracias, unexpectedly leaving one of them crossing the Pacific alone. In a frantic battle for his life, he relies on his wit and his memories to face the challenges of the sea, and those within his own mind.
This is an incredible story of determination: the determination to dream; to stand by your principles; and to stay alive, when all you have is yourself.
