An adventure story - with a difference Jessica Hepburn is an unlikely athlete - she was labelled the arty' not the sporty' one in school. She hates exercise and believes the only reason to do it is for food, booze and box-sets on the sofa. However, in her forties, following a succession of hard and sad life experiences she started to try and exercise her way out of heartbreak. She has now become one of the world's most extraordinary endurance athletes. 

The first and only woman (currently) on the planet to have completed the Sea, Street, Summit Challenge' - which is to swim the English Channel, run the London Marathon and climb Mount Everest (which she calls Chomolungma - the mountain's original Sherpa name). And possibly the only woman (although this can't be officially certified) to have listened to eighty years and over 3,000 episodes of her favourite radio programme - Desert Island Discs.

Save Me From the Waves is an inspirational story of physical and mental endurance which starts on the streets of London and culminates on top of the world, fuelled by song. It explores the redemptive power of music and mountains. How family and friends can be lost and found in the most unusual places. And encourages everyone to live big and bravely when life doesn't go to plan. Because sometimes we all need saving from the waves. And whether it's high and far away or closer to home and in your head, an adventure will always change your life for the better.
