Navigating Grace by Jeff Jay

No ordinary memoir

Navigating Grace is an unusual book, a spiritual memoir disguised as a sailing story. Years ago, Jeff Jay set off alone in an old sailboat for the Caribbean, and almost died in a violent winter storm, 200 miles off Cape Hatteras. But Navigating Grace is more than a sailing yarn. It is a spiritual reckoning.

Jeff JayYears before, Jeff had almost died of his addiction, living on the streets. He was rescued only by the love of his family. Yet Navigating Grace is more than a book about recovery. In the years between his addiction and his voyage, Jeff’s younger brother committed suicide, his father died at 58, and his first marriage broke up. Yet Navigating Grace is more a book about overcoming loss.

Navigating Grace is a many-layered memoir, as attested to by the reviews on amazon. It examines forgiveness, faith, doubt, and the terrifying moments that transform a life. Jeff Jay’s prose is quick and vivid, and when you read his story, you will believe in miracles again.
