en Limba Engleză Hardback – 15 Nov 2022

On the precipice of starting the life she had always dreamed of, Sophie Morgan was the victim of a tragic accident at eighteen that left her paralysed. Over the years, medical setbacks would level the fragile life she had begun to build; each time challenging her mental health and resilience. Yet each time she struggled through, determined to channel her adversity into opportunity, to see her challenges as a unique chance for creativity and fuel this into becoming an agent for change.
Part memoir, part coping strategy for how to cope with the unforeseen, Starting Over looks at adversity, change and resilience - the anger at the tumultuous change of fortunes, but that as arbitrary and frightening as these changes may be, some things will always remain, like the beauty of our landscape and the strength of our community, and it is as much up to you what you choose to let go, as it is what fate may take from you.
