Biography from the heart,
This review is from: Another Alice: An Inspiring True Story of a Young Woman's Battle to Overcome Rheumatoid Arthritis (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A book that leads you through the full range of emotions from ambitious teenager with the tennis world at her feet to a still young woman with more experience of life's traumas than most of us care to contemplate.
This is a story of justifiable ambition and determination thwarted by an almost uncontrollable and disabling disease where hope, ambition and determination counted for very little.
Alice Peterson has written a biography from the heart, easily readable whilst tearing at the emotions, she leads us through the desperate endeavours of her parents, friends, teachers and doctors to make her life bearable and to offer her a future worth living. Even small victories were worthy of great elation whilst any big victory always seemed to get further away however hard it was strived for.
A lesson on life and an excellent read although the ending went on a little too long.
