This book is a story of the telling of events that changed my life forever.
As if a ship sailed by and whisked me away in its wake. 

  It was an ordinary day in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The morning sun cast its light washing the trees green. A radio played in the distance as the birds sang and bounced from tree to tree, the wind steadying the course of their wings. I was an ordinary girl with dreams and visions of finding adventure not knowing how big of an adventure I was about to experience. 

  This is the true story of my life
