BOOK REVIEW

book covers together

“The book is a testament to friendship” (The Observer)

“… as much about people as it is about the physical and mental challenges of world-class rowing” (The Financial Times)

“a beautifully crafted tale of a singular woman… an important and long overdue book… its pages are rich with emotion; passion, anger and determination ooze out of the text.” (Rowing & Regatta Magazine)
