Jan 5, 2015A truly fantastic read which kept me glued through every twist and turn! I had the privilege of Viv teaching me when I was younger and the pleasure of meeting again nearly 16 years later. Viv has always been an inspirational woman with a magical way of putting things across. Strong, caring, intelligent and more determined than most people I know and this is apparent not just to anyone who meets her but to anyone who reads this book. Everyone should read "A stroke of bad luck". It is a rollercoaster of emotion and has lessons that we should all take heed of. Live life to it's full, love with all your heart and never give up!
Jan 27, 2014A truly inspiring read, written by an amazing women who shows such strength and determination. What a life Viv has had, yet has shown such a positive attitude towards it all. It makes you think and re-assess your own life! Thank you Viv. I would definitely recommend this book, it is so touching and written by a lovely lovely lady.
Jan 27, 2014Brilliant read, I couldn't put this book down once I started reading. The author was once a teacher of mine, so reading the difficulties she has experienced throughout her life is even more touching. It puts yours own life into perspective and it encourages you to be more positive towards the future. I would thoroughly recommend 'A stroke of bad luck', the emotions you go through during reading this is outstanding, from tears of joy to tears of sadness. Such an amazingly strong, determined women, who refuses to let the bad times put her down. Thank you Viv you are an inspiring women.
Jun 5, 2013Wow what an amazing life story of an amazing lady who I have got know very well every month when I arrive to do her hair. I started the book and couldn`t put it down she has been through so much and yet still has a lovely big smile on her face ever time I see her! The book is a must read whether you have met her or not she is an inspiration to us all and to others who face similar challenges. I wish her all the very best for the future. Review written by Nicky Hunter not the Author I was using her lap top!!!!!!
Mar 23, 2013It is not very often you get to meet an author. I had the pleasure of meeting Viv when her live-in carer was suddenly taken ill. Now having both met her and read her amazing book I am truly blessed. Her book is written with such panache and enthusiasm that I could not put the book down to do my job. Each and every page draws you into her lovely but varied life. Her book takes you on her journey to a time in her life where events unfolded that leaves one rather tearful. However, those tears are soon replaced with admiration. Viv shares how she turned a tragedy into an achievement. What is truly admirable is that out of such unbelievable circumstance a story has been written to give us hope. I am truly blessed, this book has touched my life and I know that this book is a gift to anyone who needs encouragement and uplifting. You are an amazing woman. An inspiration and a wonderful role model.
