The Long Way Back appeals to adventurers and armchair sailors alike. The reader sets sail along with Lois and Gunter up the coast of Australia, through Indonesia, and on to Southeast Asia, across the Indian Ocean, through Pirate Alley and the Red Sea, and finally across the Med and back to France where their circumnavigation began. The oversized paperback book, ideal for a coffee table, contains 316 photos, maps, and illustrations and 456 pages.. As is the case with her other books, geography buffs will enjoy the magazine-style Did you Know sidebars to outline the geography, history, and cultures from each of the countries visited by the Hofmanns (19 Did You Know columns in total).. Hofmann’s husband, Günter, also contributes to the book trilogy through his Messing with Boats column.
Embarking on an eight-year rjqjf adventure at sea, this entrepreneur and former CEO discovered higher highs and lower lows than the rollercoaster world she came from. Sailing around the world propelled her out of the intense fields of human genetics and biomedical technology and into the thrills, dangers, and bliss of the cruising life. Life has been reimagined several times now for Hofmann. After sailing the world, Hofmann began to write her nautical trilogy, In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss. Her first two books, Maiden Voyage and Sailing the South Pacific, are available on Amazon, on her website http://loisjoyhofmann.com/buy-books/ (http://www.loisjoyhofmann.com), and locally in San Diego at Seabreeze Books and Traveler’s Depot. The Long Way Back will arrive to Amazon soon, but in the meantime can be purchased on Hofmann’s website.
Hofmann’s first two books were each recipients of San Diego Book Awards for Published Books, Nonfiction, in the Travel Category in 2011 and 2013. Hofmann has presented at many yacht clubs and for other organizations such as the Point Loma Optimist Club and MOAA (Military Officers Association of America), and is currently available for speaking engagements in Southern California.
