This is a biography about one woman's struggle to gain control of the blows life has dealt her with. Long before it became the bugbear term in the flying industry, 'Deep Vein Thrombosis' was already a terrifying disorder for the author. Diagnosed with a genetic disorder at age 43, her life has since been shadowed by the risk of life-threatening blood clots. Having seen her 50th birthday and counting the years steadily, she tells us her poignant story of courage and determination. Zarin recounts her struggle...Born into a blue-blood family in India, Zarin was accustomed to a lavish lifestyle. The India-Pakistan war threw her family into poverty and she had to adapt. Later on in life she had to endure scornings from her mother and betrayal by her brother coupled with her sickness; yet she remained a fighter. This is more than a tale of one remarkable woman's survival of personal medical crisis. It is an inspiring call to each of us to re-examine our own lives and to have the courage to make the changes where they really matter.
