Book Talk: Sailor Girl: The Adventures of a Female Navy Sailor by Esther Brown
"Timely. A story that reminds us of our dreams with a few tears to shed along the way."
Amalee Wise is a girl from a charming little town in South Carolina. This is where she grew up, went to school, and worked. This little town was where her life was, but she did not want it to remain that way forever. The picture she saw at that time was bleak and aimless. Fortunately, Amalee knew there was something more for her out there. She could be something more. This is her story.
Sailor Girl: The Adventures of a Female Navy Sailor by Esther Brown is a story of a girl who dared to make the life-changing decision that led her to travel all over the world and meet people from every continent. Brown drew inspiration from her own experiences of joining the navy and embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. In the navy, she was able to see places and experience things that she previously only read about or seen on TV. She was able to accomplish things that weren't even on her horizon before. Through her book, Sailor Girl, she aims to inspire others to set sail towards their dreams.
Brown captures the feminine heart of adventure in this story about overcoming obstacles, finding love, and discovering purpose. Sailor Girl is an interesting read about the life of a daring woman in the US Navy during a less welcoming time. It is a new world seen through Amalee's eyes. She takes the readers on her journey to true love, her dream career, and a life that she can be proud of. It is an inspirational story of transformation from "broke and aimless" to becoming successful and fulfilled.

" Esther Brown captures the feminine heart with her daring adventures from port to port including her intimate escapades that some women only read about in romance novels.

" I enjoyed reading this book because it is written in a plain and easily to read style. It was very interesting to see how her life transformed from being broke, aimless and hopeless as she described, to being financially viable, purposeful and fulfilling and as an added bonus, finding love along the way. I will recommend this book to everyone, as it has universal appeal."

—Angela Jackson, Amazon Reader's Review, Verified Purchase
" I immensely enjoyed reading Sailor Girl. The book from beginning to end was a delightful roller coaster. It is filled with love, travel and passion all the qualities that makes for an enjoyable read. The author captured the life of a female entering into the Navy when that was not as acceptable as it is today. I highly recommend Sailor Girl to everyone who wants to be swept away on a voyage of excitement."
