Moving On: A Memoir of Life at Sea is a work of non-fiction written in a memoir/autobiographical style by author Anthony Edwards. This volume continues the author’s full autobiographical journey as we move on from the events of Paid To Live The Dream. As the title suggests, the work focuses on a period in the author’s life when he was working at sea a great deal of the time, but it is also a tale about what happens when your dreams start to fall apart at the seams. Beset by disaster, this seafaring story examines one man’s strength to overcome and shape a new life despite his hardships.

Author Anthony Edwards offers a fascinating slice of life that most of us will never experience, particularly in his many sailing adventures in and around the Mediterranean. Having visited most of these places myself, I found that I was viewing them in a new perspective thanks to the author’s well-researched history and atmospheric language usage. The memoir has a really emotional core to it as well, as we see Edwards experiencing some very sharp shocks and difficult circumstances which he must overcome. The raw honesty of the prose gives inspiration to readers as we see him pick himself up and indeed move on as the title suggests. Overall, I would highly recommend Moving On as an extremely well-penned memoir that offers an honest and realistic portrayal of life’s dramas but also a unique look at living mostly at sea.”

This is a perfect distraction from these troublesome days of lockdown during the virus. It’s a fascinating sequel to “Paid to Live the Dream” with lots of adventures and some very entertaining characters! I was holding my breath most of the way through, plus I appreciated the historical context of the places visited–so well researched! Thanks for yet another rollicking tale from trips between the U.K and the Mediterranean, and explorations of the south of France, which brought back many enjoyable memories of my numerous visits there!
