This is a truly remarkable story about Jessica Taylor, a young businesswoman who migrated to Canada from Ireland and whose life was abruptly halted by a near fatal fall at work. As she struggles to recall memories of her life as a loving wife and mother of two beautiful, young daughters, she also wages an inner war with depression and despair. Her triumphant recovery against all odds has been the subject of media coverage including TV appearances. Jessica's book and campaign work has attracted interest of many prominent people, including Royalty. With brutal honesty, she pens a series of tragic events, culminating in one of the longest court battles in Canadian history, exposing a legal system fraught with collusion and fraud. Written without self-pity, Jessica injects her narrative with wit, insight, spirituality and her own brand of hilarity. Unforgettable, all-too-human, she is a shining example of the potent force of doggedness and determination.Jessica is the daughter of the late Gordie Taylor, a Scottish actor and musician. She was a professional actress and Irish dancer during her childhood years.

Jessica Elizabeth Taylor is the daughter of the late Gordie Taylor, a Scottish actor and musician. She was a professional actress and an award winning Irish dancer during her childhood years. Devoid of self-pity and loaded with determination, Jessica is a warm and lovable character with whom any reader will find it easy to identify. Her story is a fantastic personal journey, as well as a journey of rehabilitation against all odds, told through her laughter and tears. Gently, not forcibly, she will change the way we view brain-injury but also the way we think about and view our own lives. A determined, focused individual, Jessica is always constantly aware of the limitations of her brain injury but merely laughs, muddles through and emerges on the other side stronger, happier and with more to share with those she tirelessly aids. She has taught others to "never limit yourself and never allow others to limit you. Focus on each new challenge and allow your spirit to clear each hurdle." 'Nothing stops this tireless woman. Leaving the dark cave of her horrific experience, she could have gone into the Light and moved on. But she stopped, turned around, saw the suffering of others then ran back into their darkness. She suffuses them with determination and with gentling hands, leads them steadily and surely into the light of a new, healing day.
