Mystic Seafarer’s Trail includes Amelia Earhart's Wedding Day



Secrets behind the 7 Wonders, Titanic's Shoes, Captain Sisson's Gold, and

Amelia Earhart's Wedding

Mystic, CT—Author's latest book, Mystic Seafarer’s Trail, is a humorous and historical look at the haunts and homes of Mystic’s famous sea voyagers—living and dead—and includes little-known details about Amelia Earhart’s wedding in Noank.

About the book: While searching for the Seven Wonders of Mystic with her beagle/basset hound, author Lisa Saunders uncovers the secrets behind the Titanic's shoes, Captain Sisson's hunt for gold, and Amelia Earhart's Noank wedding. But will she ever find an adventure of her own--one that will make her thin and famous? Enough to afford a housekeeper? When walking the Mystic Seafarer's Trail (which Lisa designed for those who don't like to go uphill), she meets a blind sailor who invites her on a long, winter voyage. Can this plump writer defy squalls, scurvy, and her fear of scraping barnacles to survive this epic journey?

The soft cover and e-book (which provides an excerpt) are available at: www.amazon.com/author/lisasaunders
