About the Book

Hand in Hand is the autobiography of Jane Coupes, stroke survivor. It's a compelling roller-coaster ride which follows Jane throughout her eventful recovery following her stroke in 2001, which occurred ten days after the arrival of her baby son. Do not miss this remarkable and inspirational story! Can you imagine having one of the most joyful events and the single most tragic event of your life all happening within a two week period? This is what happened to me in February/March 2001 when I suffered a massive stroke approximately ten days after the birth of my son, leaving me with significant injuries including a paralysed left arm and leg. My book covers details of my complicated, lengthy and ongoing recovery, both physical and psychological and also my difficult journey with my husband, daughter and young son, which had a triumphant outcome, hence the title of the book 'Hand in Hand! I have attempted to explain exactly what happens when you have a stroke and the assumptions as to why it happened to me, rather than the next person. I hope you will be enlightened or inspired by my book.
