"A riveting personal story of not permitting overwhelming personal tragedy to define one's life. A story of tragedy, determination and optimism."
Rose Reisman


"There's survival and then there's triumph. Lynda Fishman has done the latter, both in her life, and in this sensitive and riveting account of her personal story. Her optimism in the face of overwhelming tragedies, is indeed inspiring."
Kathy Kacer


"An amazing story of hope and inspiration. We all have challenges in life but it's how you deal with them that makes the difference."
Rick Hansen


"Compulsive reading - I couldn't put it down!"
