Sally Mills Island to Island Book Launch

Aug 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Island to Island – From Somerset to Seychelles: New book shares the highs
and lows of managing a nature reserve in paradise

Sally Mills and partner, Melvyn, swap their life in Somerset and embark on an adventure of a lifetime
managing a nature reserve on a remote island in the Seychelles. Living amongst a million seabirds
and some of the rarest wildlife in the world for twenty months, Island to Island is their story.

The author says:
“Whilst my illustrated novel portrays the drama and life changing experiences of living by nature in a tropical
paradise – with a limited food supply and no modern conveniences, it also explores the highs, lows, and
dynamics of such a rare ecological ecosystem. It reveals how influential external factors can be in such an
environment; from natural phenomena to the consequences of human actions, together with the dangerous
unforeseen cocktails that can be produced when the two are combined. Island to Island is a rare insight into
the impacts that people can have on the natural environment, and the key role that we as a species play in the
conservation of these delicate, precious and very beautiful communities that I feel so privileged to have
witnessed first-hand.
The novel is dedicated to my father, who believed in me, encouraged me, and enabled me to flourish. After all,
as his daughter, I was in his eyes a bobby-dazzler. As an expression of humble recognition and gratitude, the
funds raised through sales will be donated to St Kentigern’s Hospice, who I can never thank enough for the
sensitive and compassionate care they gave him.”

Join Sally at the launch of her book at Waterstones Llandudno.

Sally Mills will make a contribution to St Kentigern Hospice for every book sold
