That book is located under a different title on Goodreads, Once Upon A Gypsy Moon, An Improbable Voyage and One Mans Yearning for Redemption.Michael C. Hurley, a noted trial attorney who once worked as a professional sailor, returns to the sea to give us a thought-provoking memoir of a man’s yearning for redemption and renewal in the wake of infidelity, divorce, and failure. The story begins as Hurley leaves Annapolis, Maryland, aboard an aging, 32-foot sloop, the Gypsy Moon. Three years after his marriage ended in scandal, Hurley is short of money, out of a job, and seeking to salvage a life that has foundered. Woven through Hurley’s compelling prose are gems of insight on such diverse topics as faith and disbelief. As the voyage brightens in surprising and sometimes humorous ways, we are guided to a physical and spiritual destination that seemed unattainable at the start. Once Upon a Gypsy Moon tells a salty, wave-swept tale in the time-honored tradition, but it also offers a message of hope that will resonate with anyone who has had to pick up the pieces after personal failure and loss.
