Can you imagine wanting to have a baby so desperately that you risk your marriage and everything else that s important to you in your life to have one I really can t envision this yet Principles of Navigation is primarily based on this premise This book by Lynn Sloan is told in exuisitely written prose in alternating points of view first Alice s and then Rolly s Alice writes for a small town newspaper in Indiana while Rolly is a prominent artist and professor at the local university All the other characters in the book are drawn with a fine brush Reading about them I understood them all both what they were feeling and where they were coming from Ironically the only character that I had difficulty relating to was Alice Sometimes I had difficulty with her desperation to have a baby and her unrelenting anger Otherwise I would have given the book five stars I recommend that you read it yourself and see what you think about it

review Principles of Navigation × eBook or Kindle ePUB Ted sculptor harbors ambitions that draw him away from a steady teaching gig at a “backwater” college and unravel the couple’s moorings Principles of Navigation explores Alice and Rolly’s journe. This story caught my interest right away and held it to the point that I finished the book in a day The author wonderfully brings alive the drama of normal lives Normal people with the common struggles of life rendered vividly and without excessive sentimentality The story explores the tension between the personal and professional desires and expectations of married couple Rolly and Alice and its effects on their marriage and their choices The character development is strong Rolly and Alice have their flaws but they are likable I cared about what happened to them and about their marriage The minor characters help propel the story and add to the suspense The topic of reluctant parents isn t encountered often Having a lukewarm or lack of interest in child rearing as Rolly does carries a certain stigma in American culture I dreaded a tidy wrap up and was gratified when it never came The ending is perfect true to life and reflecting the gritty reality of child bearing that is so often glossed over in favor of perpetuating the myth that having a baby brings nothing but happiness and familial reconciliation
