Rachel Kidd about this book: This book covers around four years of my life, starting from the moment I was hit by a car driven by an illegal underaged driver. The result of which left me a lower spinal paraplegic. Although my body healed in reasonable due time, my mind would not come to terms with things, so I ended up taking 'recreational drugs', and hitting the bottle, thus becoming a drug and alcohol addicted. During the four years following my accident I treated my family with utter contempt and trapped my own kid sister into doing my bidding as my drug courier. I was responsible for many other horrendous deeds during those years, including stabbing my own husband. This book takes the reader through those years, and eventually out of the other side of the hellish life I had been living, to a happy conclusion.
I warn anyone that if they are on the 'sensitive side' they should not read this book, because I don't hold back on any part of telling the truth. This book certainly doesn't make for a 'jolly pleasant' bedtime read. Truth is far more stranger than fiction I can assure you.
This book was written as a kind of 'cleansing of the soul', and to show anyone that there is always someone wiling to help you through your darkest hours, all you need to do is reach out and take their offered hand back into the light. This book is available in both paperback and Ebook.

One Hell of a Story
I read the e-book version of this book after my other half raved on about it being the best read she'd had in a long time, and after reading it myself I have to heartily agree. If you want a book that tells it just like it is, with no holds barred, this is the book for you. All I can add to this is, "There but for the grace of God go any of us!" [by P. Sinclair]
