So Many Everests Summary

So Many Everests: From cerebral palsy to casualty consultant by Diana Webster

Victoria Webster was born with cerebral palsy - and that meant, for many of those involved in her education, that she should limit her horizons. But Victoria had her eyes, and her heart, set on a high peak of achievement - to be a doctor. And, despite everything she tackled taking her longer than most of her peers, despite assurances that her patients would object, despite suggestions that she give up - she persevered and became not only a Casualty Consultant but the first Casualty Consultant in Sweden. Surrounded by loving family from her birth onwards, Victoria's story is also her mother, Diana's story, and together they tell of the mountains scaled and conquered. This is wonderful, heart-warming and encouraging read. "This is easily the most moving book I have read." Katherine Whitehorn, journalist and columnist
