Uncharted Waters takes readers into the lives of Vicki and Neil as they embark on the journey of courtship and marriage. Neil had previously cancelled their wedding plans after the announcements had been sent, the gown purchased and fitted, and the multitude of other arrangements assigned. He had announced this news in the form of a letter sent to Vicki from his station of duty in Vietnam. On the chance that he still loved her, Vicki moved across the country, and began a new life in Savannah, Georgia. One obstacle after another seemed to stop them from being together, and when they were finally able to marry, the trials they faced were almost too much for a young, immature couple to bear. Read about how enduring love begins and forms the basis for a marriage that at the time of the first printing of this book has lasted forty-seven years.

About the Author

Victoria Farnsworth was born in California, but grew up on a beautiful island in the Pacific Northwest. She spent three years in California as a teenager, but returned to Washington to graduate from high school. It was during her senior year that she met her husband, and after his return from Vietnam, they married. They have spent over 47 years together. Victoria has moved to Payson and is enjoying her retirement surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains in central Arizona.

Her first work was published in the Reader's Digest in August of 1983. She spent the next several years writing poems for family, friends, and church, but never endeavoring to publish her work.

During her career as a swim instructor, she was also busy raising a family of three girls. As is every mother, she was busy driving girls to lessons, sports, and church activities.

When the girls all left home for school or marriage, she spent time in serious prayer and contemplation. She then embarked on a new career as Clara the Clown. Seven years were spent clowning around up and down the West Coast. As always, she was busy with church service and managed to be a Relief Society President during this time. Her new career ended when a car accident forced her to retire. After becoming a Master Gardener she started a new business doing landscape design. Unfortunately, another car accident forced her to once again give up something she loved.

Writing continued to be a hobby. During her ten-year membership in the Glove & Trowel Garden Club, she spent four years as secretary and writing the quarterly update of the club's activities. In June of 2011, Victoria had an article published in the Northwest Landscape Professional magazine about butterfly gardening. So many people read the article and commented that she should write professionally; a seed was planted!

Now in her retirement, the time has come to share her life experiences. One book could not begin to hold 60 plus years of unforgettable events; hence, this work will take many volumes to tell the story of an ordinary woman living an extraordinary life. She is also volunteering in her community, helping children learn to read better. This has inspired her to begin to write a series of children's books, "Rebecca Bridges, Amateur Sleuth." Victoria has also begun a trilogy based on the life of her third great-grandmother, Jean Mac Conochie, a lady-in-waiting to Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III.
