The book ‘Fate Takes Two Hands’s Memoirs of a Physiotherapist’ was written by my mother in law who wrote about her life before she became a physiotherapist during the Second World War.
Based on a true story this is a heartwarming tale of a wartime working life of a physiotherapist during the Second World War. Born in Manchester in 1916, the author went with her parents to a pantomime to see Peter Pan. From that day forward she set her sights on being on the stage with her name in lights.
However, her mother and father had other plans for her. She tried every trick in the book to avoid going down their career route, and shares her love, loss and friendships to pursue her dream of being an actress.
That was until she met Audrey, who changed her direction in life into the hospital theatre rather than the dramatic theatre.
Separated from her beloved family she bravely endures a trip on her own across the world to be with her loved one, and writes in detail of the patients she was treating during the war.
I promised my mother-in-law before she passed away that I would do my up,OST to get it printed for her and after reading it, I knew I had to give it a go. With no chapters or paragraphs and hand written in quite a difficult script it did take me nearly 2 years to finish but I got there in the end.
From today until Thursday 17th January this book is free to read on Kindle as I would love some reviews from my readers on her book and the finished product. Many thanks.
