Imagine waking up in a hospital bed and you cannot move a single part of your body apart from your eyelids. You have had a major brainstem stroke and initially want to die...but then you decide to fight back.

Fast-forward 18 months. You are on holiday with friends in Majorca. You are speaking, talking and walking again against all odds. You have an important story to tell as do so many other stroke survivors and their loved ones.

Gonna Fly Now! Reveals the true-life story of Sheffield mum-of-three Kate Allatt who unleashes the highs and lows of life after a stroke in February 2010 at the age of just 39. She shares a plethora of comedic upbeat moments and gives an insight into what it really is like to be hospitalized for eight months, learn to walk, talk, and run again. The impact on her loving husband Mark and their three children, and adapting to everyday life back home. Her Spanish ‘girls’ holiday’ of 2011 is full of comedy drama as she laughs at her brave new world and is determined to ‘seize the day’ despite bittersweet revelations that she has complex emotional issues about her life post stroke. Gonna Fly Now! shows the reader that despite the high standards she sets herself, Kate Allatt is not superhuman. She is extraordinary, resilient and determined and after all she has endured, she has retained a healthy sense of humour. This book will make you cry. It will also make you laugh out loud.
