How Good is That?: The Story of a Reluctant Heroine by Jane Tomlinson
Following a seven-year battle with cancer, Jane Tomlinson died at the age of 43 in September 2007. Almost exactly one year earlier, on 1 September 2006, Jane finished a gruelling nine-week, 3,700-mile cycle ride from the west coast to the east coast of America. Her journey was hailed as one of the greatest endurance feats ever by a terminal cancer sufferer. How Good is That?takes the reader behind the scenes of this extraordinary last ride across terrain and in temperatures which were to prove almost untenable as Jane's illness worsened. She was defiant to the end.The book, already substantially written by Jane for her part before her death, has been completed by Mike to give an incredible and moving insight into his wife's final days as well as the achievements, emotional and physical, of a woman who inspired a nation.
