About the Book

Pheasant describes in an immediate way the experience of being in a coma and out of her body. She learns how everything in life is her choice, whether to live or to die, when she chooses to live, and that everything in her life has to be relearned and rebuilt. Join her and her mother, Susan, an accomplished artist, in the story of how she had to begin again. Read about the challenges and triumphs of recovering from, and living after, a traumatic brain injury.

About the Author

Pheasant is nineteen years old and is studying a diploma in Equine Sciences in Pretoria, South Africa. During the practical year of her studies she has a near- fatal fall from a horse. Written ten years after the accident, Pheasant involves the reader in each moment of her recovery, the highs and lows, and ultimately shows us what we can all overcome.
