"[A] well-researched, gracious and truthful account." --Georgian Bay Today

When her husband proposed living on a boat full-time, Debra Cantrell wondered what other women in her position had done and began a five-year study to find out what choices they had made and how it had all worked out. The result is Changing Course, a guidebook for navigating this odyssey. No matter what the outcome, each woman was strengthened by the experience.

In an era when "downshifting" is common and people are considering the benefits of simplified living, Changing Course is both timely and practical.

Debra Ann Cantrell, Ph.D. is an adult educator who leads workshops and seminars for those seeking balance and wellness at work and play. She also conducts workshops for individuals and couples who are contemplating major lifestyle changes. She and her husband spend about six months of each year afloat.
