When journalist Melanie Reid fell from her horse, she was paralysed from her chest down. She spent almost a year in hospital, determinedly working towards gaining as much movement in her limbs as possible. Unflinchingly honest, this is an inspiring memoir about risk and dilemma, heroism and love. Above all, it is a reminder that at any moment the life we know can be turned upside down – and a plea to start appreciating what we have while we have it. Includes a foreword by Andrew Marr.
