Synopsis: Life can change in a heartbeat…When struggling actress Heidi has a life-changing accident aged 32, her world falls apart. Stuck in hospital and unable to walk, her only companion is Maud, the elderly lady in the bed next to hers. Heidi misses her flatmate, her life, her freedom – surely 32 is too young to be an amputee? But when Maud’s aloof but attractive grandson Jack pays a visit to the ward, Heidi realises that her life isn’t over just because it’s different. It might not look like the life she dreamed of, but it’s the one she’s got – and there’s a lot she still wants to tick off her bucket list. With Jack at her side, will Heidi take the first step back to happiness? Or is there one more surprise still in store…? A feel-good read based on the inspiring true story of journalist Ella Dove. Sometimes all it takes is one small step…

As we near the end of 2019, this is one of the last books that we will review, but wow what a book! As a debut novel, Five Steps to Happy is outstanding, and because it is based on a true story every emotion is laid out on the pages of this amazing book. It is full of such a raw and open honesty that as you turn each page you gain more insight into how life can change so dramatically. Utterly compelling, this beautiful book will stay in your mind long after you have finished reading it.
