Two of Everything Thanks

Author: Jeff Jones
Condition: Very Good Secondhand
ISBN: 9780723307419
Format: Paperback
Publication Date: 1985

Jeff Jones: a good-looking, easy going 21-year-old on a working holiday in Britain, having a time of his life. An accident at work and his is a paraplegic – bedridden for four months, never again able to walk without sticks and calipers.
Julie Langhorne: one of Auckland’s best junior sprinters. A car accident on Christmas Eve 1976, two days before her twentieth birthday, leaves her paraplegic, confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life.

Two of Everything Thanks is their story. Jeff tells of his disablement and the subsequent years of physical, emotional and psychological adjustment. He describes meeting Julie and the life-changing effect of their relationship. He tells of their involvement in paraplegic sport at national and international level, including the Disable Olympics in 1980. He tells their decision to have a family and the remarkable result: identical boys, the first ever born to a paraplegic couple.

Two of Everything Thanks is about coming to term with disability; it is a love story; it is an account of the miracle of parenthood. It is a true story, delightfully told, of hope, humour and humanity.
