This is the story of Shane and Timothy and their Dutch barge.
Trade Paperback
Published:  01 March 2012


This is the story of Shane and Timothy and their Dutch barge, The
Princess Matilda. After spending a summer on the Thames, they decide
to head out to sea with only a road atlas and a vast amount of ignorance.
Throughout this wondrous journey, they share memories of childhood
trips to the seaside, but also of more recent times. A decade before, Tim
had been diagnosed with acute leukemia and was given only days to live.
Shocked at how life can pass you by they decided that if and when Tim
got better, they would buy a boat.
As Tim and Shane explore the coast from the Medway to Cornwall,
eventually they start to wonder. Could they make it out of England
altogether? Could Matilda make it to Wales?
The Voyages of the Princess Matilda tells two inextricably linked stories.
The first, how Tim and Shane take charge of their new boat and attempt
to sail her to Wales, and the second, of how Tim beat his life-threatening
illness. This book is very much about being alive and how important it is to have family, friends and loved ones around
us. An intimate journey of epic proportions, where Tim and Shane sail on to celebrate life, love, and living.
