A Hair's Whisper - From Cancer to the Courtroom ASIN : B0BDVYFX2H
ASIN : B0BDVYFX2H
The dramatic and captivating true story of corporate greed and the bullying of a cancer patient.
When Shirley Ledlie, a breast cancer patient survivor, stands up to one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies and its lawyers, she embarks on a journey of strength and determination, and with an unbreakable sense of duty to do the right thing.
Despite fearing for her safety and standing at a mental crossroads, not knowing which path to take, Shirley shares her innermost thoughts, even those she’s ashamed of, and her rollercoaster of emotions from despair to elation and self-doubt to confidence.
A Hair’s Whisper is a gripping and empowering story that shows what can be achieved when we fight for the truth.
Naked in the Wind
Shirley has written an honest, yet compelling account of how she took on the drug giants and the murky medical world of drug trials, doctored statistics, and cover-ups. Oh how I admire her for this and her beautifully written prose. Her deftly woven narrative charts how she tackled the baffling French legal system in a language that isn't her own alongside charming snapshots of her life in rural France. Shirley's fortitude leaps off every page; so many of us would hideaway after not only dealing with cancer but the prospect of life without a glossy mane of hair - not Shirley. Her writing is compelling, funny, and honest. I read this book in one sitting. I've no doubt many more readers - rightly so - will do the same.
Samantha Brick, writer.
Shirley has managed to write a book that's personal, funny, compassionate, entertaining, and informative all at the same time.
A great read!

The Unexpected Pilgrim
A light-hearted and fast-moving travelogue.
When presented with an opportunity to visit Israel for four days, Shirley decided it was a chance she could not turn down.
It would mean sightseeing on her own - a daunting task for this woman in her mid-fifties with a terrible sense of direction. She decided to cram as much as possible into her short time there with some amusing and exhausting consequences!
Mischief in Manhattan
Five women from England decide to go to New York City for five days, to sight-see, and celebrate a 50th birthday. Shirley is invited along to make up the numbers, but will they all see eye to eye or will there be bickering in the Big Apple?
With neighbours they haven't bargained for, troublesome fried dumplings, spoons and dress shoes, and some typical 'Englishness' thrown in, will Shirley's intrusion cause a strain on the friendships of the four strong and very diverse personalities? Only time will tell.
