In the course of her work for the BBC, Pam Rhodes has met hundreds of people whose stories have messages for us all. Some are famous, most are not; many have remained her friends. Some have drawn upon their Christian faith, others have found strength in different ways. Now a number of them have felt able to share with Pam - and with us - their touching, sometimes shocking but ultimately inspirational experiences.

Eileen Harrild was the gym teacher at Dunblane primary school. Shot four times, she looked evil in the eye as she witnessed the massacre of sixteen young pupils. A group of former POWs, forced to work on the Death Railway and in Japanese copper mines, were stunned to hear of a new monument to their former comrades in Japan, and were moved to return fifty years later to participate in an act of reconciliation. The brilliant young jockey Declan Murphy, whose skull was crushed during a race, tells how he fought back to win again. Angela Baker speaks movingly about the death of her husband John, and how out of this tragedy was born The Alternative WI Calendar - eleven ladies of 'a certain age' baring everything to raise money for Leukaemia Research. And the Right Hon. Mrs Shand Kydd speaks with insight about the pain of bereavement, having lost not only her daughter, Princess Diana, but her son John, too.
