I will pulled into the book by the woman in his life who loved the shrimper but became sad when the shrimper was out for months at a time. Missing the love of one's life is difficult. Remembering what's important is also difficult. It's when tragedy happens that one finds the true meaning of love.

"Swimming Lessons" by Mary Alice Monroe

What a beautifully written book this is! I finished reading it just moments ago and I'm still digesting the fact that the story is over. This book was filled with warmth, hope, love and caring. It taught us about the loggerheads and how we actually do help those in need. I had no idea this was going on and am very grateful for it. I love turtles. I love life. To spend one's time helping the nests/eggs is a gift to all. When children do this with such love and concern, it's incredible.

It's a story about a small community that takes care of each other. As they say, it takes a village to raise a child. This is one such example.

"Swimming Lessons" is all about taking chances, reaching for your dreams, helping others and finding love where you least expect it.
