My Stroke of Inspiration

This true story is set against the backdrop of the Russian invasion of Crimea. People say that real life is stranger than fiction. Paul’s recovery from the stroke, which paralyzed the right-hand side of his body and left him unable to speak, was remarkable enough, but his adventures in Ukraine and the friendship he developed with Olena (Helen) make this memoir something very special.

Read about Paul’s struggles in hospital to recover: the enormous physical effort, the mental battle to live or die, his humour and frustration in the face of adversity, and especially the value and appreciation he found in friends and family.

This recounting of Paul’s journey back to health shows what can be achieved with motivation and determination and hopefully will be an inspiration to others suffering from strokes or devastating illnesses.
