In the blink of an eye, Hasso von Bredow's life changed forever. The 42-year-old father of three suffered a massive stroke at the base of his brainstem. Totally paralysed and unable to speak, his body became a prison, the blinking of his eyes the only means of communication. Yet Hasso refused to give up, somehow finding a strength to persevere against all the odds. Painstakingly written, letter by letter, and helped only by his wife and carer, Catherine, Hasso's intensely moving and life-affirming memoir is interwoven with Catherine's memories. In spite of all they faced, the strength of their devotion shines through, and their words open up a world of imagination, courage, humour and most importantly, love.
