“‘Yes, I really am sure and yes it is, er, very pretty.’
'Are you sure now young lady? Hang on! Weren't you in here just the other day buying it? ... So, tell me. Go on! Why do you want to return it then darling?”

No Damage: An Adventure in Courage, Survival and the Pursuit of Dreams by Kathryn Hodgson is a memoir “sans pareille,” a journey through loss and pain to freedom, captured within the spirit, and real healing. Kathryn is just in her thirties and has made many mistakes and suffered a lot of serious blows from life as well, including broken relationships, having to spend some time in a South African prison, and fighting cancer. These could make anyone lose heart and give in to pessimism, but not the heroine. In this slim memoir, she shares her journey toward hope and how her positive world-view allows her to create the kind of life she wants and pursue her deepest desires.
No Damage: An Adventure in Courage, Survival and the Pursuit of Dreams is a book that carries the powerful message that all is never lost, that in spite of our struggles, we have the power to transform our lives, to create, and to transcend our reality, especially when we learn to embrace life generously and to live in hope. The writing is beautiful and the author’s voice comes across gracefully and compellingly. I admire the audacity of this story and the sincerity with which it is told. Readers will hear their own fears and stories in Kathryn Hodgson's voice.
