The next course for me in the BookSparks University Fall Reading Challenge for 2014 is Studying Abroad! Semester in Thailand with the required reading of The Unimaginable by Dina Silver.
The Unimaginable by Dina Silver
About The Book:
Set on the sun-soaked beaches of Thailand and the rough waters of the Indian Ocean, The Unimaginable paints a vivid portrait of a young woman on a journey to find herself - and her harrowing fight for survival. After twenty-eight years of playing by the rules, Jessica Gregory moves from her small Indiana town to Phuket, Thailand. But her newfound routine is upended with the arrival of Grant Flynn, a captivating, elusive man who is sailing around the world while trying to move on from a past tragedy. Jessica volunteers to help crew Grant’s boat, Imagine, on a passage across the Indian Ocean and finds herself falling in love with him as the voyage gets underway. But when disaster strikes, Jessica must summon her courage as the crew is confronted by unspeakable terrors - and, aboard a boat named for such promise, comes the unimaginable.
This was a great read. Love, mystery, starting over. It has it all. A very thrilling read. This is a good book to take your mind away on a voyage. A bit predictable, but a great story non-the-less.
