The book is easy to read, completely compelling and takes you through a tough emotional and physical journey. The work that Julia does to help combat modern day slavery is brave and relentless, just like that incredible journey across the ocean. I will be recommending this book to everyone and anyone - love it!
Read it and be inspired to do something no matter how big or small, no matter how challenging your personal circumstances. We can do something that will make a difference. Someone once said, "all that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing". We can all do something. The lives of others depend on it!
This story is real - not just in the sense that it is a true story - but in the way that it is written; It's honest, raw and captures perfectly the spirit and passion of the start of Julia's fight against human trafficking.
Here is a ordinary woman, with the same vulnerabilities and issues as most of us, who became passionate about one of the greatest global crimes facing humanity. Combine that passion with a God-given sense of purpose and you have an extraordinary woman who achieved what many thought impossible - Two World Records and an Atlantic crossing that would have challenged even the most experienced rower. Julia's row wasn't just a test of physical and mental endurance though, it was a catalyst for exposing the scandal that is modern day slavery.
Let this book disrupt you - disturb you even - it deserves to. Highly recommended.
Understanding the awful reality of human trafficking is one gift this book gives its readers. Overwhelmingly however is the gift of hope that one can apply to one's life after reading this book. It's a twin journey, so the fight against modern day slavery is also part of overcoming a difficult time in my life, and I'm now connected to that worldwide struggle. I'd recommend you read, and pass it on!
The book is the story of what happened next and her gruelling journey to becoming a double world record holder. It's a perfect fit for anyone who wants a little inspiration in their life - want to know how to raise your game, deal with fear, and do stuff you never dreamt possible? Read on...
