About the Author
Sometimes in life you seem to travel full circle with people coming and going in your life. Grace is one of these people. Having met at the age of eleven years old, we had that close bond as friends throughout school and the formative teenage years. Sharing and experiencing the music and fashion of the eighties. Eventually going to the same college but somehow following different paths for the next twenty-one years. I have always believed that people have soul mates, but you have to encounter many obstacles living life before fate brings you together. This is precisely what happened with Grace and me. Having spent so many years with no contact, we were eventually reunited, and I am proud to say have since married. The expression "It's one of them" was something I had not heard until I moved to Coventry. I hear it a lot from people I work with, and I have to say Grace uses it a lot. But it is so fitting to Grace's attitude toward her life and past experiences. I never hear Grace moan about what she has been through, for I think it has made her stronger and more determined to succeed in whatever she decides to do. I am very proud of my wife and know this book will inspire many people to make the most of life. Learn from your mistakes, remember to have a wicked sense of humor, and love the people who treat you well. James Saunders

An insight into someone's life, such as Grace Saunders, makes you re-evaluate self-perception and throw away statements that are so freely used, such as: "my life is so hard" or "people don't understand what I've been through" or "if only my life were like so and so's"
The author's intention in writing this novel is, I believe, not to make the reader feel sorry for what she has been through but exactly the opposite. The fact that the author has a great sense of humour and a real zest for life is truly inspirational in spite of the restrictive blow that her history has dealt her.
Whether you live with a disability or not, this is a book that will inspire hope, courage and determination within the reader.
Whilst I applaud the author for giving such a candid insight into her life, I urge any reader who is looking for a spark of hope or inspiration to buy this. Upon finishing it, I defy anyone to not to feel differently about their own life.
What happened to "Richard" was unlawful judicial murder and Mr James Gamble and Ms Sharon A Girling are both responsible and should be arrested and charged with Manslaughter (at the very least).
Charting her life living with SMA and all the emotional and physical problems that go with it this book is a must for anyone who thinks their life is problematic, not worth it or have similar problems
At times funny and very sad this woman is an inspiration to us all-a must read
