Jackie Parryabout this book: An ordinary person with an extraordinary life.
I embarked on a nine year odyssey on a ten metre sailboat around the world. The story of adventure, love and redemption is true and will carry you over each wave, from tragedy to triumph.
My story has been called, "resolute, stimulating, rousing, inspiring and unconventional."
Life became terrifyingly exciting when I ran away from home with a broken heart. This journey helped me piece my life back together and figure out who I am. Now, I am delighted to find that my story is helping others too.
Adventures include a near 'agreed' abduction by a beautiful French Gigolo, who lifted me up from the road after I was run-over in France. This didn't alter the incredible bond between my new husband and I – a bond that I've only witnessed in movies. But, I still carried the mixed emotions of losing one man, while falling head over heels with another.
Come join me on a thrilling ride and travel the world from the comfort of your armchair. Find out why my husband worked in a Barbados brothel and how we survived a whale collision, what happened when we crashed our boat and came close to pirates, muggers and man-eating crocodiles.
