Praise for the book, Seeker

"A crackling sea story, an adventure yarn to stand with any of them – except that this sailor is not a swashbuckling, peg-legged pirate with an eyepatch but a soft-spoken, introspective woman with a keen eye and (although she never mentions it) bottomless courage... an experience most of us can only read about." -  Jack Todd, winner of the Mavis Gallant Award for Non-fiction and the Quebec Writers Federation First Book Award.

"This book will appeal to the nomad hidden in those with a dream to roam, to those who love to meet others, try their foods and languages, and it may spark something even in the most sedentary reader. Travel with Rita and Bernard in this wonderful tale of adventure!" – Goodreads Reviewer
