All You'll See is Sky, Resetting a Marriage on an Adventure Through Africa
Book Description
Couple to embark on an adventure, driving 25,000 miles across Africa. The trip challenged almost every belief, opinion, and value they held. They collided with the world and each other. Africa reached out and threw everything—including every traveler's worst nightmare—at them. A heartbreaking tragedy and Janet’s arrest.
A true account that explores themes of love, commitment, resilience, and the power of forgiveness in the face of adversity. It is a memoir of a woman’s transformation from brokenness to wholeness and a couple's transformation from breakdown to breakthrough.

Author bio
I am a South African-born author and adventurer with a passion for Africa's wilderness, wildlife, and diverse cultures. I met my husband, Tom, during student anti-apartheid protests in South Africa, and we later immigrated to Canada with our two sons in 1979. Tom and I have completed three extensive overland travels driving over fifty thousand miles (80,000 km) across Africa. From Alaska to Argentina and around Europe. To survive our marriage while on our wild adventures, we’ve had to learn the ‘street smarts of marriage.’ I have a degree in sociology and nursing and obtained my master's in health administration. Tom and I currently live in Calgary, Canada. We’ve presented to a wide variety of audiences, and the most question we asked is, “How the hell did you two put up with each alone in a car for 18 months?”

"The world in which you were born is just one model of reality. Other cultures are not failed attempts at being you; they are unique manifestations of the human spirit." Wade Davis, anthropologist.
