Another book finished

This week I also finished You Can’t Take it With You by Jane and Mike Tomlinson.  I am attracted to people who achieve great things against all odds, but must admit to being astounded at Jane’s simultaneous fight against terminal cancer and determination to take on great sporting challenges.

I am not quite sure whether I am intimidated or inspired though, and that feeling is obviously reciprocated by some women who are suffering from breast cancer and feel unable to fight so hard. Nonetheless, Jane and Mike’s story is worth reading and is also written in a very readable form, with sections of autobiographical chapters from each of them.

  1. Hi there!
    Wrong Jane Tomlinson! Don’t get the cancer-suffering, sporting Jane Tomlinson mixed up with the hippy artist one (me).

    Sorry about muddling you up, Jane
