Some Chapters Are Like The Gripping Movies We Yearn To Discover

"Reading ‘Her Middle Name Is Courage’ is a bit like catching up with an old friend, whilst at the same time learning from one of your most respected mentors. It’s a book you want to settle in to, it keeps you interested so that you don’t want to leave it, and some of the chapters are like the gripping movies we yearn to discover. It’s a very moving book, I will be honest, I was brought to tears reading it on a number of occasions, but I also rejoiced in the inspiration and the learning to be gained from it.

This book is so relevant for everyone at all levels, and it really needs to be shared!
