Description - Love Always, Petra by Petra Nemcova

At 25 Petra Nemcova was leading a charmed life - modelling career, photographer boyfriend and a jet-setting lifestyle - a far cry from her childhood in communist Czechoslovakia. But her world changed for ever on 26/12/04 when a Tsunami hit the resort where she was on holiday. Her boyfriend, Simon Attlee, was swept away while she clung to a tree for nearly 8 hours, her pelvis shattered and her legs numb. Her rescue by Thai natives and remarkable grace under pressure have been reported around the world but now she tells her own story: from the agony of her physical recovery; to confronting the loss of the love of her life; to her tireless efforts to help the relief efforts in Thailand. Petra also reflects on her struggle through an impoverished childhood to launch a modelling career in the world's fashion capitals. But most of all, LOVE ALWAYS, PETRA is the story of her love for Simon Attlee - a love not diminished by his death. A heartbreaking, touching and finally uplifting account, the book sends a message of hope, faith and love to readers everywhere
