I stumbled across this book when looking for something new as I am an avid reader. This book was a pleasure to read & was completely inspirational!
It provides a fascinating insight into the world of rehabilitation with the twist of an unusual setting & unlikely combination of characters.
I found myself really routing for the main characters, & was really inspired by the author's obvious passion.
It also contains a lot of very interesting information. I loved it!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I started to appreciate all the small things in life again. It is a story of a man who has everything rediscovering himself. I loved how the story tells us that we are in charge of our own destiny, and only we can determine our own future. I would definitely recommend this book.
