Product Description

"I had not cried at all. I was being brave, although inside I felt very scared; absolutely petrified. My body felt battered, well the bits I could feel did. The rest felt dead. Two thirds of me was dead." This is the incredible battle to rebuild a life that was shattered in a split second. When Claire was 27 she suffered a devastating spinal injury in a freak accident whilst eventing. In April 2012 Claire made worldwide headlines when she walked the London Marathon in a pioneering robotic suit taking 17 days. 'FINDING MY FEET' is the moving true story of how one determined, courageous young woman had to fight through the darkest days to go on and have the best days of her life. Claire has already raised over 300,000 to help find a cure for paralysis, and this book will help provide more vital funds for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation. "Claire is a distillation of all that we should find motivational- intensely driven, positive and an achiever despite the horrendous times which she has had to endure" Sir Matthew Pinsent "Claire has to be the most incredible person I have ever met. She simply lights up a room. To think of the difficulties she has had to overcome is mind blowing. She is an absolute inspiration to us all" Melanie C "Claire is a force of nature. Give her a challenge that seems impossible and she will smash it to bits. She knows no limits, sets no boundaries and never takes 'no' for an answer. Unless you ask her 'have you finished?' In which case, 'no' is the answer because she is never finished." LAUNCH DATE 20th February

5.0 out of 5 stars Read in one sitting 9 Mar 2014
By Hazel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Extremely well written and easy to read - started reading after tea and didn't stop until I'd finished. An open and uplifting book which offers a real insight into the journey that Claire is traveling.
I would recommend this book to everyone - I can't think of anyone who wouldn't feel uplifted having read it, but particularly anyone with an interest in spinal cord injury; who works for the NHS (particularly in rehabilitation); who has an interest in eventing/horses; or who loves the delightful town of Stamford.

There should be a six stars plus rating for exceptional books because this truly is one! Written from the heart it takes you through an amazing journey from despair to looking forward with confidence to the future. Had a few tears, a few laughs but above all was left with a feeling of true admiration.
