I read a lot, and it's a long time since I've read a book as compelling and well written as this one. Just love Diana's sense of humour despite her horrendous situation. Hopefully she'll write more books - she's a natural.
This story was amazing!! Well written, poignant, completely heart breaking at times, but through it all Diana's humor and strength shine through. What an amazing woman for all she has gone through and how hard she was willing to fight. Shame on the BR for raking her over the coals and trying to make her the bad guy after everything she had to go through. Thank you for sharing your incredible journey with us. It definitely makes me want to handle the small piddly challenges I face with more grace following her example. Great read!!
This was an amazing book about an amazing woman who succeeded where so many others might have just given up. Because she had such a strong personality and a wonderful net of support helping her, she overcame not only physical handicaps, but legal and emotional ones too. While she didn't have a totally happy ending, the one she had was the one that meant the most. I won't give anything away, but the pictures are wonderful and help supplement the story.
A good story of triumph over terrible circumstances. It was incredible that British Rail would drag her through court and all the garbage that went with it when it was obviously their fault. To learn near the end what they spent on legal costs but were stingy with the compensation she got is sickening.
Excellent book which would help those who have been dealt a rough deal in life. Inspirational and touching for those who think they'll never meet someone if they have been permanently disabled! Have faith.
