Love & Justice: A Compelling True Story of Triumph Over Tragedy (Paperback)

Synopsis

At the age of 29, Diana Hill fell under a London train. In 7 seconds the tall, glamorous businesswoman went from busy woman of the world with everything to live for to double-leg amputee, her life in ruins. Then it got worse. A few days after her accident, as she lay in hospital, traumatised and heavily sedated, she learnt via a newspaper article that the railway's Transport Police were to interview "The Fall Girl", as the Press had labelled her, with a view to prosecution. She had boarded a moving train, they said, and trespassed onto their railway line. Her fight for justice took five years and was, she declares with no hesitation, a more harrowing experience than having both of her legs 'stolen' from her. As any young, single woman would be, Diana was shocked to the core by the sudden, catastrophic change in her body image. What man would ever love her now? The issues surrounding sexuality, amputation and disability are explored here with stark honesty as she recalls her complicated love life, the High Court dramas, and the rawness of her pain amidst a turmoil of emotion, all told with tremendous humour, charm and heart. For Diana loves to tell stories. Especially true ones.

A brutally honest, heartwarming memoir that shocks and delights in equal measure - when you're not crying for her you're laughing with her

Writing has been at the heart of Diana's working life. She was a press and publicity manager for Brookside, Channel 4's soap opera, and ITN and then became a journalist and editor for a number of TV business publications. After freelancing for the MIDEM organisation, she set up MediaVision, a press, public relations and strategy consultancy to cater for the booming markets in international television. Suffering from catastrophic injuries following a train accident, she then had to refocus and has subsequently worked as a TV presenter, as a chief executive, was MD of a small publishing company, and an assistant producer in TV. Her voluntary work has included trustee and committee positions for the National Wheelchair Tennis Foundation, The Limbless Association and the British Red Cross. She now supports the Arvon Foundation, a charity that provides writing weeks for potential authors, and she continues to counsel others suffering from limb loss. Diana lives in Dorset, by the sea. She is a motivational speaker and is presently writing her first novel, a psychological thriller.
