Two years into retirement and Eddie Townsend is uncertain. It’s a feeling he shares with many of his baby boomer cohorts. He planned what he thought was an idyllic retirement — to play golf four days per week, go fishing whenever he wants, sleep in and get up when he feels like it, and take Melissa out for dinners. Well . . . he did some of that for a while, but now he’s wondering: “Is this all there is?”

Something is missing, but he doesn’t understand what. And so he goes on a quest to find the answers. His adventure begins on the Imperial Cruise Liner, Serendipity, and a two-week ocean-going retirement seminar. What he finds surprises him: that he is not alone. There is an interesting mix of characters on this ship all looking for answers to the same question:

What do I do now that I’m retired?

While searching, each will have to deal with their own demons and questions regarding their relationships and life choices. Humorous and awkward scenarios take place during this trip that produces some surprising twists and conclusions.

Readers are invited to join Eddie and the other passengers as they launch out into the deep and uncover the keys to living a richer, fuller next chapter of life.
