The lure of paradise was unmistakable, and Bill Butler was on a quest to find it with his wife Simonne-riding the Pacific currents on their sloop. In this powerful account of their 66-day odyssey, Butler tells a gritty, harrowing tale of their battles against nature, despair, and their own demons. He reveals how he and Simonne found the strength to survive despite the ravages of hunger, storms, and sharks. Based on Butler's faithful log entries, 66 Days Adrift is both a chilling cautionary tale for sailors with big ideas and an inspiring story of love, faith, and survival against long odds.

The constant mention of God was off putting and the priest meddling in the marriage was just too much.

A great story!

Very interesting story.

But as far as the accused is concerned I think it was game over when the pro bono lawyer confirmed that there is no forensic evidence anywhere near the scene of the Crime in relation to his client the accused.

As there was no forensic evidence of any kind at the scene of the Crime relating to the accused one is very puzzled as to how the French will conclude matters.

With great difficulty I would have thought.
