Reviews
"A poignant and lyrical read that will ring true with sailors and interest landlubbers."
--Kirkus Reviews

". . . conveys a message of hope, clarity, patience, acceptance, understanding, and non-conformity to the reader. The author makes the reader think and re-think actions and incidents that helped shape their own life. A most interesting memoir."
--Readers' Favorite, 5-star review

"The Shell and the Octopus is an insightful coming-of-age memoir about a strong and compassionate woman. Raised by her unstable father aboard a thirty-foot sailboat, Rebecca Stirling's haphazard adventures allow her to make peace with herself in a dangerous and gorgeous world. She is an everywoman, and yet not like anyone else you've ever met."
--Leslie Johansen Nack, author of The Blue Butterfly
