Rachel James' heartfelt introduction to the world of spinal injury caring for her daughter, then aged just 22. Honest, forthright, Rachel's journey is harrowing, and tragic yet she blends it with grace and humour. With many helpful tips, this book is a great resource for those wanting to understand more about the devastation caused by an injury of this type, (or other unexpected trauma) and the hypocrisy of how society still deals with aspects of disability.

A personal account for carers containing any number of helpful hints, coping strategies and realistic descriptions of the many steps along the journey to recovery and the new normal following a traumatic injury. Highly recommend.

Rachel and Emily have been inspirational in how they have reshaped their lives after trauma. I hope Rachel's warm humour and insightful words help provide support for others who may be going through their own journey. Thank you for sharing this empowering story.

A must read for anyone who finds themselves in this position ... nothing prepares you but this book gives helpful tips with each chapter. It shows that there is always hope and that life can still be good once you overcome the initial hurdles.
