9781484057032: Hummingbird: A heart-felt account of one woman’s emotional journey through life - from loss, fear and risk to self-discovery and joy

A true and inspirational autobiography, written straight from the heart. Hummingbird is for those of you who enjoy real-life stories, inspirational books, have challenges, like challenges, self-improvement and awareness - or just like to be truly moved by a book. Deborah invites you to share her uplifting story – an emotional journey that takes you to Costa Rica, India, China, Mount Kilimanjaro and to London's Central Criminal Court, The Old Bailey. When Deborah was eight years old her father was diagnosed with a hereditary and degenerative disorder, for which there is no cure. Discovering that all of her five children had a 50 per cent risk of developing the disease, Deborah’s mother was faced with the heart-breaking task of telling her children the tragic news. With no test available, Deborah grew up under a cloud of uncertainty which affected her life and her decisions from that time on, in a profound way. After many years of struggling with her sadness, two of Deborah’s brothers were tested positive for the disease. Her brother Nigel decided that he didn’t want to live with the condition but did not want to die alone. When she left for her holiday to Costa Rica that year, Deborah had no idea that the death of a little baby hummingbird would turn her life around so unexpectedly and so profoundly. Meeting her guru and learning about a better way to cope, Deborah finally started to see the black cloud shift and the rainbow appear. Uncovering a hidden emotion that her subconscious had been afraid to acknowledge, she finally got in touch with the joy that is the very essence of us all. "It's like 'Eat, pray, love' with guts" .. journalist Fiona Locke The two most common messages that Deborah gets from her readers are: 1. "I couldn't put it down" 2. "Thank you for writing it".
