  1. Review 3

    “Glenys Carl’s life changed for ever with one phone call in the middle of the night – the call every parent dreads. It was a doctor telling her that her son Scott has suffered a traumatic head injury and was in a coma”
    This book is amazing, you will be willing Scott on and it feels you are there living the moment with Glenys through her and Scotts journey. There are moments of pure happiness that you are laughing out loud and moments that I had to put the book down due to crying that much. It is one of the best books I have ever read, and a book that makes you treasure what you have.
    The book shows that one person ‘Scott’ has so much effect on other people’s life and the struggle Glenys has to go through to try and get Scott professional assistance. If you only read one book this year please let it be this one.

    This is a wonderful story of courage against all odds and a mother’s determination to restore her son’s ability to live a fulfilling and happy life no matter what obstacles are placed in the path. I read this book in one day as I was unable, and unwilling, to put it down. When I first opened the book I was disappointed that there were no photo pages, but as I continued to read the story the descriptions of the volunteers, family and friends who passed through Glenys & Scott’s life were so vivid that photos were not really necessary. The small photos on the outside and inside the cover of Glenys Carl and Scott were sufficient. Glenys Carl is certainly a remarkable woman.

    This book is incredibly inspiring! I strongly recommend it to all. The author tells of how she cared for her son after he sustained a brain injury from being beaten and pushed down a stairwell by unknown assailants. Despite how his injury occurred, she kept her faith in humanity, and was able to garner many volunteers to help her with her son’s rehabilitation. She and her son touched so many lives, and increased awareness about the need for funding for continued rehabilitation for people with brain injury. I was so awed by the depth of her love for son, and her willingness to allow strangers to help her when she had no where else to turn. Despite how her son’s injury occurred, this book really makes one see that the majority of people are good, and will help when called upon.
