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 mom, as well as celebrated author and international speaker.--Adapted from dust jacket.
