'Tears of sorrow will roll down your face, only to be followed by tears of laughter. You will be filled with awe at the solid spirit of Martine Wright.' CLARE BALDINGBy turns heart-breaking and heart-warming, Unbroken is the exceptional real story of a female who turned injury and catastrophe into hope. The autobiography of 7/7 bombings survivor and GB Paralympian, Martine Wright., On the early morning of 7th July 2005, Martine Wright's life altered permanently. As she boarded an eastbound circle line train at Moorgate station, in the middle of the busy rush-hour, she didn't pay attention to her fellow passengers. At 8.49 am, one of those passengers detonated a suicide bomb that would kill seven people in the carriage, part of a wider attack on London declaring 52 lives that became known as the 7/7 bombings., Martine was, in fact, the last individual to be drawn out alive from the atrocities. She lost 80 percent of her blood, remained in a coma for seven days and underwent ten months of surgery. Not only did Martine survive her horrific injuries however, having never ever played sport seriously previously, she used up sitting beach ball as part of her rehabilitation and went on to represent Terrific Britain at the Paralympics in London 2012., A deeply poignant moment that symbolized her triumph over catastrophe, it marked a journey Martine felt she was predestined to make. Since then Martine has ended up being a national figure: a formidable, effective, brilliantly amusing, extremely engaging heroine who has returned - nearly literally - from the dead. In 2012 she was granted the Helen Rollason award at the Sports Character of the Year and in 2015 the Independent voted her one of '50 most effective ladies in British Sport'., Beyond her incredible sporting accomplishments, Martine continues to change the lives of those around her as a charity fundraising event and inspirational speaker.
