Afloat by Danie Couchman

I thought this was going to be a book about the highs and lows of living on a canal boat, and of course it was partly that, but there was a lot more to it than just navigating locks and finding a spot to stop for the night. This is more about the author’s search to find herself, someone a bit lost and looking for the way forward, having survived some personal traumas. It was good not just to hear the romantic side about life on the water, there were plenty of negatives too. The book wasn’t quite what I had expected, but it was well written and detailed an interesting journey.
