Summary
"Janine Shepherd was an elite ski racer whose bid to represent Australia in the Olympics was cut short by a tragic accident. After six months in hospital battling to rehabilitate her permanent disabilities, she taught herself to walk again, and earned her wings both as a pilot and an aerobatics instructor. Happily married and raising three children, her life was again upended when she was forced to face a painful divorce, the loss of her home, and financial ruin. Undaunted, Janine persevered in managing her again-reinvented life as a single mum, as well as celebrated author and international speaker.--Adapted from dust jacket
Summary
It was a miracle she survived the accident on May 31, 1986. She wasn’t supposed to walk again. She wasn’t supposed to have children. Fly a plane? Impossible. Yet Janine Shepherd did all of these things—and today stands as an inspiration to millions of people across the globe
