Review

'The most romantic story you will ever read.' - Woman's Journal "Love & Justice tells the story of an indefatigable battle against both disability and injustice. Diana's story is one of triumph over both her injuries and the intransigence of British Rail.' - Daily Mail 'A compelling story of how humour, friendship, grace & sheer grit can triumph over unthinkable catastrophe' - Liz Jensen, bestselling author of The 9th Life of Louis Drax and The Rapture 'This is a story of how indomitable the human spirit can be. If you want an example of hope over adversity with all the struggle, heartbreak and pain along the way, then you will find it in this book.' Dame Anne Begg, MP for Aberdeen South 1997-2015 'This extraordinary account will steal time, invade sleep and profoundly affect you. Perhaps you will never be the same again' - Sue Joiner, Village Writers, New Forest There are very few books that I'm truly evangelical about and want to insist that everyone reads - this is definitely one of them. She's an excellent writer.' Louise Voss, author 'Has all the twists and turns you'd expect in a book penned by John Grisham. Except it isn't fiction.' Bee Lewis 'A thrilling read. A jubilant masterpiece on every level.' Rosie Jones - First writer in residence for the National Trust, at Kingston Lacy ' Love & Justice is a rollercoaster of emotions which will have you alternately crying and laughing. There are many lessons to be learnt from this beautifully written, unputdownable book..' Christine Aziz, author and winner of the Richard & Judy novel-writing competition [ 'The novel-like style is a brilliant, powerful device;your mind is lulled into novel-mode, then you will be ambushed wth a sentence of heartbreaking, lacerating poignancy.' TE Donnell, Train driver 'Diana's talk has us all mesmerized.' The Charroux Literary Festival 2015 ' Powerful and witty. It had me at the first line. ' Tricia Walker, author

Product Description

At the age of 29, Diana Hill lost both of her legs under a London train.

In 7 seconds the tall, glamorous businesswoman went from busy woman of the world with everything to live for to double-leg amputee, her life in ruins.

Then it got worse....


"Diana's story is one of triumph." Daily Mail

As featured in The Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror; ITV News, ITV This Morning with Amanda Holden and Phillip Schofield; BBC Radio 2's The Jeremy Vine Show; BBC Radio 5 Live, Ireland's 'Late Late Show' Ryan Tubridy Show & more.

A few days after her accident, as she lay in hospital, traumatized and heavily sedated, Diana learnt via a newspaper article that the railway’s Transport Police were to interview her with a view to prosecution. She had boarded a moving train, they said, and trespassed onto their railway line.

Diana's fight for justice took 5 years and was, she declares with no hesitation, a more harrowing experience than having both of her legs ‘stolen’ from her.

The issues surrounding sexuality and disability are explored here with stark, jaw-dropping honesty...

What man would ever love her now?

Diana's complicated love life will keep you turning the pages as if you were reading the most gripping pot-boiler romance.

The horror of the accident itself and the re-lived rawness of unimaginable pain will break your heart...

The High Court dramas with the shocking, sexist, behaviour of the rail company and the British 'justice' system will boil your blood with rage....

The preoccupations of a beautiful 29 year-old-girl, swaying frequently to love, will melt your soul.

All told with tremendous humour, charm and heart. For Diana loves to tell stories.

Especially true ones.

"Proves that women of courage are not born, but made so by their own blood, sweat and tears." Rosie Jones, The National Trust's First Writer in Residence

"This is a story of how indomitable the human spirit can be. There is much that disabled people will recognise.." Dame Anne Begg, MP for Aberdeen South 1997-2015

"Full of honesty and charm." BookBub

“A compelling story of how humour, friendship, grace and sheer grit can triumph over unthinkable catastrophe. This unflinching memoir is proof that what does not kill us makes us strong.” Liz Jensen, author of The Ninth Life of Louis Drax

"Diana’s disability story is balanced with humour, joie-de-vivre and an unquenchable determination to live life to the full, on her terms, legs or no legs." Susie Kelly, Author

"I only read this book because of its relevance to my occupation, I approached it with a hardened attitude. I joined the railway soon after Diana's accident in the era of slam-door trains... The novel-like style is a brilliant, powerful, device; your mind is lulled into novel mode, then you will be ambushed with a sentence of heartbreaking, lacerating poignancy. It will drain you, ,make you weep make you laugh.. reminding you powerfully about the fragility of life & limb." Mr D, A Train Driver

"Powerful and witty. It had me at the first line." Tricia Walker, author of Benedict's Brother

"This book was more of a page-turner than any novel I've read in a long time." Louise Voss, Author

If you loved This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay you will devour this witty, heartbreaking, painfully funny but heartbreakingly sad story of triumph, hope and strength against all odds. Try it now!
