A promising national swimmer, Maureen McKenna, has to stop the sport she loves on medical grounds. Distraught, she kicks back at the world that has betrayed her. A combination of commercial acumen and problem drinking saw this business high flier soar and crash - repeatedly. It couldn't continue, Maureen became an alcoholic, started a 12 year abusive relationship and the world had won again.

Without hope, aged 33, she joined Alcoholics Anonymous and met a young man who told her about a surer kind of hope founded on faith but she still considered her life worthless. She tried to throw herself in front of traffic on a busy road and felt a hand restraining - but there was no one there. She phoned the young man from AA and became a Christian that day. Maureen and Hugh (for that was his name) married and worked with street people in Glasgow.

Their charity, 'Open Door Trust Glasgow' opened in 1998. Maureen died of cancer in 2002, after being made 'Scotswoman of the Year'. The first version of this book was voted 'Best Christian book' by a panel of judges from across the UK.
