Row For Freedom
Crossing An Ocean In Search Of HopeBook - 2014
"Thirty-two-year-old Julia Immonen and four other women take on a challenge completed by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest or gone into space : row three thousand miles, unaided, from the Canary Islands to Barbados. 'Row For Freedom' chronicles that dramatic journey, detailing the grueling, peril-filled crossing, which broke two world records, as it weaves together Julia's search for hope and purpose against a background of relationships scarred by violence. As Julia's physical and emotional treks unfold, you also learn about the plight of the thirty million victims of the modern-day slave trade that serves as the motivation for her row. Be inspired by Julia's self-discovery and her team's triumph in one of the most formidable physical quests ever undertaken." -- back cover.
