The power of a mountain lies in our strength in climbing it. Join one woman on her adventurous recovery from the depths of heartbreak and fatigue.

Jessica Hepburn is an unlikely athlete – she was labeled the ‘arty’ not the ‘sporty’ one at school. She hates exercise and believes the only reason to do it is for food, drink and boxsets on the couch. And of course, Desert Island Discs, her favorite radio show.

In her forties, she navigated a series of difficult life events. Heartbroken by not being able to start a family and feeling lost in a busy life where she had to keep her struggles secret, Jessica had nowhere to turn.

In a deep despair, all she could think to do was pull on her swim cap and look to new heights…

She’s now the only woman on the planet to have completed the ‘Pond to Peak 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).

…all while listening to 3,000 episodes of Desert Island Discs.

Save me from the Waves is her story. It’s an account of immense physical and mental endurance which starts on the streets of London and culminates on top of the world, fueled 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.
