The following book review was written by Bobbi King:
In Search of a Fair Wind The Sea Letters of Georgia Townsend Yates, 1891-1892 By Georgia Townsend Yates and Clint Cargile. Zea Mays Publ., Sycamore, Ill. 2017. 229 pages.
I find memoirs to be extraordinarily engaging, even when the central topic is of no great interest to me.
Being pulled into someone else’s life, reading the private thoughts, feelings, perspective, reactions to family, fears, insecurities, being privy to someone who has had a life different from mine, and shares it so unpretentiously, feels like a privilege.
