The second journey called me out in deep waters To swim, float, tread or sink. I chose to float, as I'm no good swimmer. There was no land in sight Just open waters, no safety ring, no floating debris. The choice belly up, ...

From the bestselling author of A Year by the Sea, this memoir is a coming-of-age story for every woman who has asked herself: "Now what?" The Second Journey chronicles Anderson's quest to restore equilibrium to her life after the responsibilities of being a mother, wife, grandmother, caretaker, and bestselling author distract her -- almost dangerously -- from taking care of herself. Suffused with Anderson's characteristic humor and warmth, this book is a permission slip for any woman who seeks to step out of line and create her own destiny. As Joan shares her stories of balancing love, marriage, family, parents, and spirituality, she inspires and instructs readers to find peace and a unique purpose within their own lives. She offers reassurance that the best is yet to come, and empowers other women to come of age in the middle of life.
I settle into a deck chair to let the ship rock me into otherworldliness, intending for this journey to be one that gets me out of my head and into my heart. I want the second half of my life to be every bit as meaningful as the first.

Howell tells how his group of missionaries set off from England but never reached their destination. Approaching Rio de Janeiro they were taken by the French privateer, the "Buonaparte" under Captain Rivière, which then sailed, along with the captive "Duff", to Montevideo. There the captives spent some time in comparative freedom. Howell records his observation of the customs, especially at Easter, of the people of Montevideo and the surrounding region. He then recounts their transfer to a Portuguese ship, the "Medusa", and the voyage back to Lisbon, where they were freed. The narrative is accompanied by many pious asides.
