Overview

Heather Mills was already a recognized leading land mine activist and a successful model and businesswoman when she and Paul McCartney fell in love - and made headlines all over the world. Her story is extraordinary by any standards, a rags-to-riches account of a remarkable young woman with unusual strength and courage, compassion and humanity.

When her left leg was amputated just below the knee in an accident with a police motorcycle in 1993, it would have been tragic under any circumstances - but was doubly cruel for a professional model whose livelihood depended on her looks.

But Heather Mills had come too far, and worked too hard, to let becoming an amputee wreck her life. Years of setbacks and traumas had given her the drive and determination needed to cope with this disaster too. Before she turned sixteen she had been arrested, run away from a broken home, joined a carnival, and held down a succession of menial jobs in London. Dealing with losing her leg was merely a new challenge for her.

In A SINGLE STEP Heather Mills McCartney speaks about her commitment to medical relief work, describing her travels and the moving encounters she has had with others who have lost limbs. She also tells of her first convoy of artificial limbs to amputees in Croatia, which she organized in 1994, and the foundation she created that brings life-changing prostheses to men, women, and children in war zones around the world. To date over 27,000 people have been helped.

Told in a wonderfully vivacious, candid voice and illustrated with sixteen pages of personal photographs, A SINGLE STEP is the story of a remarkable woman who proves that adversity can help a person grow in surprising and rewarding ways...and that love can come when least expected to change both destinies and hearts.

Author Biography: PAMELA COCKERILL, who assisted Heather Mills McCartney in the writing of A SINGLE STEP, has collaborated with the subjects of many successful autobiographies, including Marion Sherwood (The Miracle of the Cards), Virginia Williams (A Different Kind of Life), and Jenny Pitman (The Autobiography). She lives in Yorkshire.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Heather Mills McCartney, who married Fab Four icon Paul McCartney in June 2002, writes movingly of her life as top fashion model, successful businesswoman, and determined land mine activist -- and about how everything changed drastically when she lost her left leg in 1993 after an accident with a police motorcycle.
Publishers Weekly
First published in England in 1995 under the title Out On A Limb, this autobiography shows a rosy-cheeked, optimistic McCartney recounting her life from troubled childhood to storybook romance with Paul McCartney. The author spent her childhood and teens bouncing from home to home, evading the blows of her abusive father. At 13, she ran away to work at a street fair and eventually found herself living, "cold and stiff inside my Pampers box," under a bridge. After a car accident interrupted her modeling career and left her with a partially amputated leg, McCartney determined that "something good is going to come out of this accident." She started her own non-profit organization to benefit amputee victims worldwide and eventually gained enough media attention to join forces with the UN-endorsed Adopt-a-Minefield. Her up-by-the-bootstraps tale ends with an update on her courtship to Paul, and after 37 houses in 34 years, one can hardly blame her for settling down a bit and taking a few vacations to the beach (which, incidentally, is probably the best place to read this breezy look at one of England's most-discussed new celebrities).

    Heather Mills is More Than Just Another Pretty Face!

    A Single Step is a memoir based upon the life of Model and Humanitarian Heather Mills. This book is truly about what we as people can accomplish in life if we allow our minds to see and envision it first. Despite of Ms Mills losing a limb, she refused to let anything get in her way of accomplishing her dreams. This book is great read for anyone needing a little encouragement.

    An Inspiration

    Having had misfortune myself, I was greatly inspired by Ms. Mills McCartney's bravery and lack of self-pity. Her candor, yet careful telling of her romance with Paul McCartney is a lesson in dignity.
