On Good Friday 2010, Melanie Reid fell from her horse, breaking her neck and fracturing her lower back. She was 52. Paralysed from the top of her chest down, she was to spend almost a full year in hospital, determinedly working towards gaining as much movement in her limbs as possible and learning to navigate her way through a world that had previously been invisible to her.

Absolutely true to life! Something to make every listener reflect and reconsider in ones own experience I thoroughly enjoyed it and one does not have to be involved with horses to enjoy it.I have recommended it to many people young and old, because it is about real life and how we deal with what it throws at us, helping us to remember that we all need to dig deep inside our own selves

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Language of Kindness: A Nurse's Story, written and read by Christie Watson. Christie Watson was a nurse for 20 years. Taking us from birth to death and from A&E to the mortuary, The Language of Kindness is an astonishing account of a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness.
