An inspiring story of courage and resilience. Hopefully most of us will never experience either of the traumatic episodes Rachel North has, and to read about how she has rebuilt her life, not once but twice, is a humbling and thought provoking experience. There is no self pity here, just a positive message of survival and hope for the future.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Out of the Tunnel by Rachel North
Dramatic and traumatic, Rachel North skilfully and grippingly entwines the trauma of a vicious rape attack in 2002 and the unimaginable horror of being a passenger in the first carriage of the underground train that exploded at Kings Cross on 7 July 2005.
Barely recovered from the ordeal of a two year wait for justice that saw her attacker finally sentenced to 15 years in January 2004, Rachel was, by dreadful coincidence, reading the story of her rape in Marie Claire magazine when Germaine Lindsay detonated his bomb within a few feet of her.
Remarkably, Rachel escaped without serious physical injury, but the images from the tunnel that day have remained seared in her memory. Rachel found therapy in writing about her ordeal and is author of a critically acclaimed blog, the content of which forms the basis of part of this book.
Out of the Tunnel is the emotional and inspirational story of one woman’s incredible experiences, her battle with, and victory over PTSD first time round and her remarkable ambition to use that experience to bring herself and her co-survivors out of the wreckage of carriage 1.
Reviews'In the terror of July 7th Rachel North found her own capacity for courage and discovered that she had extraordinary gifts as a writer, not the least of which is her powerful honestly.'
