You will stay riveted while reading about this one-woman dynamo that refuses to give up. You can't miss her humor she keeps as her shield. This book will leave you wanting more from the Author. Geoffrey, Orlando The thing that strikes you while reading this book is how resilient Shelley is. No matter what life throws at her, she survives and becomes a stronger person. This book is a tribute to that resilience. Resilient, resourceful, determined are all words that describe the author. This look at her life is as interesting a read as you are likely to get, full of drama and pathos. A book you can't put down. Michael M, Kittering, England.
