Nicky Rogers, editor 'Mobilise Magazine': 'book that moves you so much ... will be in your thoughts for the rest of your life'. Her first book is 'a triumph', the language is expressive and emotional, and it transcends normal boundaries, akin to a rollercoaster.

Then you cry in pain, the disbelief and the frustration, as the strong young woman becomes a victim of circumstances. But read on ... she will have a giggle around the corner. 'Typically Gillian', a continuation of this journey, requested by followers, she lives alone with help.
