South African Martinique Stilwell spent her childhood sailing around the world with her parents and twin brother. They set out in 1977 from Durban and had spent 7 years sailing when Martinique left to complete her education and qualify as a medical doctor.
"A remarkable account of a storm tossed childhood. Martinique Stilwell has an eye for the telling details and the prose talent to make each one matter." Nic Dawes, former Editor-in-chief of the Mail & Guardian
