Something To Think About - Read Woke

Posted On Thursday May 20, 2021

Defiant chronicles the remarkable life of Janine Shepherd, 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 not only taught herself to walk again-she earned new wings as both a pilot and an aerobatics instructor.  Janine survived a painful divorce, the loss of her home and financial ruin. She again-reinvented herself as a single mom, as well as a celebrated author and international speaker. "Personally, I was awed by Janine's resiliency. She was able to look past her limitations, to accept her altered abilities and move forward with her life with such a positive attitude."

Defiant offers encouragement and hope to anyone facing a life challenge. Reserve it on HHPL’s catalogue today!
