Summary
"Australian-born Gill Hicks was on her way to work on a Piccadilly line train on 7 July 2005 when a terrorist bomb exploded in the carriage in which she was travelling. Amazingly, and against all the odds, she survived the blast, but due to the injuries she sustained her legs had to be amputated. In this moving memoir Gill recounts the events of that day, from facing the very real prospect that she might die and her subsequent fight to live, to later coming to terms with losing her legs and living life as a disabled person. The book includes excerpts from the diary she wrote during her rehabilitation, an account of her wedding day in December 2005, and traces the journey of her extraordinary recovery."-- Web site.
