About the Book:
Ground rush is scary when green swirling grass comes up to grab you as you fall from 6,500 feet at over 100 mph. You are plummeting towards your fate, not knowing what that will be. Will it be certain death, or will you survive to tell the tale? Unbelievably Joanne survived.

This book captures the full story 25 years on; it is especially for those who have experienced a traumatic event and those who treat them.

“…I began to write down feelings and thoughts that were coming to me, the words pouring out onto the page in seconds, as fast as I had fallen. Not the calming and beautiful feelings I describe when explaining my near-death experience, the part I prefer to talk about and cling onto as the good part of the otherwise horrific accident, but the full-blown, inescapable raw terror I felt. The part I didn’t know was still there, inside, in the deepest recesses of my mind…”

Joanne’s message is one of hope and encouragement for others to dig deep and find all the resilience and strength they have within to recover from adversity and live the best life possible.
