A swashbuckling tale of leaving home, and the joy of adventure.
Drawn to the horizon since she was small, the heroine of this story longs to discover what lies beyond it. She builds herself a boat, with the help of her parents, who know they cannot keep her on the little island they call home.
With courage, joy, and the gift of the most brilliant of swords from her parents, she sets off. She sails through storms, faces down sea monsters, and comes to the aid of lost sailors. In the market of a distant port, she finds a child, who she adopts as her own. The young boy shares her desire to explore and see the world, so together, they set sail once more. After years of adventuring, they find the island that was once her home. Coming to rest on the shore, our heroine sends her son off on his own voyage, with the most brilliant of swords.
Beautifully illustrated, this immersive book celebrates the great joys of the voyage itself. It captures the experience of finding your own way in the world, and letting your child do the same. The Voyage is a tribute to living beyond fear, of leaving home, and returning to it.
