Written by Linda Pestana
with Jayne Hannah
In August 2017, while at home, Linda Pestana fell from a kitchen stool and hitting her head, suffered a severe spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia from the neck down. Her family was told she would not survive the night. The next morning she told the doctors that they didn’t know her well enough, and then began her journey to walk again.
In this honest and raw book, Linda describes how she found the motivation to continue and to create a fulfilling life, in spite of, everything. These are the methods she uses every day to build upon courage and perseverance that she wishes to inspire in others.
As she says herself, this is not a book about her own situation, it is written as a guide for everyone, no matter what they are facing, so that they can move into a place of courage and determination. Each page will help serve as an inspiration, providing tools that everyone can use for growth and empowerment.
It is Linda’s purpose for us all to find ours, and this heart written book will lead you there.
