Guy Grieve, author of Sea Legs: One Family’s Adventure on the Ocean

«There is a rare subtlety in so much of this. Smillie finds a freedom, beauty, and joy in amongst the rolling waves and shifting tides of loss, illness, and grief. The Half Bird is an immensely enjoyable ocean adventure, but what emerges is a deeply inspiring story about the quiet strengths that reside within us all»

Will Millard, author and BBC presenter

«Susan Smillie's story is told with all the invigorating energy of a crisp wind under a cloudless sky. The way she renders the world as seen from the prow of her beloved Isean is utterly beguiling. The Half Bird is a wonderful book – and one that shows vividly and fearlessly that there are many ways for an adventurous woman to live»

Charlotte Higgins, Chief culture writer, The Guardian

«A lesson on how to live, how to heal, how to grow and how to fly»

Gordan Buchanan, wildlife filmmaker

«I didn't know a love song between a woman and her boat could transport, and transfix me. The Half Bird made my heart whole»

Rhik Samadder, author of I Never Said I Loved You

«A beautiful, wise and open-hearted odyssey through life, loves and the sea. Susan lives many of our dreams, showing how we need nature, solitude and community – and less stuff! – to flourish and find freedom»

Patrick Barkham, author of The Butterfly Isles
