Summary

In 2005, Martine Wright was a marketing manager for a web company, focused on her career. In 2015 she was voted one of the '50 Most Powerful Women in British Sport' by The Independent. In between those dates, her life changed forever when she lost both of her legs in the London tube bombings of 7/7. She was, in fact, the last person to be brought out alive from the atrocities. She lost 80 per cent of her blood, was in a coma for 10 days and underwent 10 months of surgery. Unbroken is her deeply moving and inspiring account of how she not only survived one of the worst terrorist attacks in British history but turned that trauma and tragedy into hope.
Not only did Martine survive her horrific injuries but, having never played sport seriously before, she took up sitting volleyball as part of her rehabilitation and went on to represent Great Britain at the Paralympics in London 2012 - a deeply poignant moment that marked her journey from tragedy to triumph. Since then she has become a national figure: a formidable, powerful, brilliantly funny, hugely engaging heroine who has come back - almost literally - from the dead. Paralympian, Helen Rollason award winner at Sports Personality of the Year 2012, Strictly Come Dancing contestant, charity fundraiser, inspirational public speaker, and so much more, Martine has emerged from unimaginable adversity to change her life, and the lives of those around her for the better.

Martine is an amazing person but she also shares her success and survival with those around her that got her through this journey.

A great read of how to overcome what life throws at you.
