    Highly entertaining and a great read. This book gives an honest look at treasure hunting for lost treasure ships. Margaret had a wild and crazy ride during her treasure hunting days. The story pulls you into her emotional rollercoaster journey. Her journey ended with a much different treasure than silver or gold. This story had a much different ending than I expected which turned out to be fantastic. It was refreshing to read a treasure story that painted things in a true life perspective.

    It’s rare for me that a book will take me through a range of emotions while reading it. I was cheering for her, I was cursing her, I felt sorry for her. I had so many different thoughts while reading about Margee’s adventures....from “wow! I wish I had been more like this when I was younger!” and, the thought I had the most..,”boy is she dumb to trust that guy!” This book will appeal to just about anyone who likes true stories about someone who casts aside what they know to jump into something t It’s rare for me that a book will take me through a range of emotions while reading it. I was cheering for her, I was cursing her, I felt sorry for her. I had so many different thoughts while reading about Margee’s adventures....from “wow! I wish I had been more like this when I was younger!” and, the thought I had the most..,”boy is she dumb to trust that guy!” This book will appeal to just about anyone who likes true stories about someone who casts aside what they know to jump into something they don’t know. I’m not going to give any spoilers here, because you need to read the book yourself to find out what Margee goes through as a treasure hunter. As a non-boating, non-water-loving person who can’t even swim, my interest was held while reading this story, as she never gets so detailed about the treasure hunting life or the details of boats and diving that I lost interest. I really, really want to know what Margee is doing now. I feel like I know her after reading this book. Pick this one up - you won’t regret it. *I was provided a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

    The story has wonderful potential but falls short in a few areas. As the story progresses the author takes the reader from one event or timeframe to another just by changing the paragraph. For example: the author was talking about the weather forcasting huge waves over 50 feet tall and wondering if the ship could make it through such a stron wave and the next paragraph it is two days later. Instead of a story about finding shipwrecks it is more a story about learning how about herself. She embar The story has wonderful potential but falls short in a few areas.

For example: the author was talking about the weather forcasting huge waves over 50 feet tall and wondering if the ship could make it through such a stron wave and the next paragraph it is two days later. Instead of a story about finding shipwrecks it is more a story about learning how about herself. She embarked on this process of finding shipwrecks without doing any research, she did not even go to the library to see if this shipwreck actually happened, she took the word of everyone that it was real, that they knew where it was, that they would not have any trouble getting the permission of the local governments. I was hopful for a story about a strong, competent woman who believed that she could do something and (even if there were setbacks) accomplished the task. In the end there was a measure of success but I am not feeling as though it was enough.
