Wavewalker Suzanne Heywood

Wavewalker is the incredible true story of how the adventure of a lifetime became one child’s worst nightmare and how her determination to educate herself enabled her to escape. 

Aged just seven, Suzanne Heywood set sail with her parents and brother on a three-year voyage around the world. What followed turned instead into a decade-long way of life, through storms, shipwrecks, reefs and isolation, with little formal schooling. No one else knew where they were most of the time and no state showed any interest in what was happening to the children.

Suzanne fought her parents, longing to return to England and to education and stability.

This memoir covers her astonishing upbringing, a survival story of a child deprived of safety, friendships, schooling and occasionally drinking water.  At seventeen Suzanne earned an interview at Oxford University and returned to the UK.
