9780007260904: Unbreakable: My life with Paul - a story of extraordinary courage and love

Unbreakable tells Lindsey Hunter’s moving and heartbreaking story. Lindsey is the widow of snooker star Paul Hunter, who died tragically aged only 27 after a battle with cancer in October 2006, leaving Lindsey and their one year-old daughter Evie bereft and alone.

Lindsey met Paul Hunter when she was 21 and he was 18. When they married seven years later, Paul had become a golden boy in the world of snooker, dubbed ‘the Beckham of the baize,’ having won the Masters trophy three times, and attained a world ranking of number four, and Lindsey's happiness looked assured. But tragedy struck when Paul was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, neuro-endocrine tumours in his abdomen.

Aggressive chemotherapy appeared to work, and within six months Paul was competing in a major championship, with Lindsey cheering him on from the side-lines. More joy came when Lindsey gave birth to their daughter, Evie Rose. But tragically, Paul died in October 2006, 18 months after his diagnosis, leaving Lindsey a widow and single mother.

Lindsey was determined to celebrate Paul's life rather than mourn his death, and has dealt with the loss of her young husband on the eve of their life together with strength and courage, for the sake of their daughter.

This heartbreaking and inspirational story has huge universal appeal.

Review:

'A heart-breaking book'. Elle magazine.

‘[Unbreakable] is a story about two people who were very much in love and how they pulled together in a crisis.’ The Scotsman

Only the stoniest of hearts could fail to be moved by [Lindsey’s] description of the last weeks of [Paul's] life, and the final acknowledgement that the end was near.' Yorkshire Post

From the Back Cover:

The first time I saw Paul Hunter he was 18 and I was 21. I needed a lift into town for a night out. And a friend said my cousin will drive us in. I got into his blue sports car and thought, 'He's just a kid.' His cousin said he was a real snooker player. And I said, 'As a job? That's not a real job. It's a hobby.'

The last time I saw Paul Hunter he was 27 and I was 31. By then he was my husband and the father of my baby daughter.

This is the story of everything that lay between those two events, the love and the laughter, the glitter and the fame, the pain and the fear, the terror and the loss. It's a story which doesn't end with death or because one of us is no longer here. It is a story about love.
