Tere Duperrault On Sunshine 106.8FM
The true story of the sole survivor of a massacre at sea.
In 1961 eleven-year-old Terry Jo Duperrault’s family fulfilled their dream of renting a luxury sailboat so that they could spend six months exploring the Caribbean. It should have been the holiday of a lifetime, but the dream turned into a nightmare when the sociopath skipper Julian Harvey slaughtered her family and left her for dead aboard the sinking Bluebelle.
Terry Jo cheated death by escaping on a tiny cork raft as the boat went under. Through sheer determination she survived for four days alone in the ocean, without food or water.
In Voyage of Terror, Terry Jo (now Tere) tells her story of survival for the first time. Through psychologist Richard Logan she reveals how she clung to life in shark-infested waters, enduring the burning sun by day and freezing winds at night. We discover what became of her family’s murderer, a pilot and war hero who had successfully hidden his past and duped the Duperraults into trusting him.
Both chilling and inspiring, Voyage of Terror is a story of the best and the worst that we are capable of.
