The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes. Review

This is the story of Stella. Stella is an ordinary wife and mother then one day her entire life changed for the worst when out of the blue she got a very rare disease . One of the main symtoms is that the patient cannot communicate at all so she is stuck in her own body unable to move or speak. 
Having no way to communicate with the outside world we see a good bit of the book through Stella's thoughts , what she was thinking and how she was coping internally . The outside world is somewhere she dreams of being again but not everyone out there is whom they seem to be.
One of the shining lights in this dark time of her life was her doctor ,through him she manages to communicate enough to feel less alone and this is where her healing begins , she is very inspirational  but someone might like to steal her new life.
This was a thought provoking read that really made me appreciate the small everyday things we can do , and take for granted. Stella is a very strong character who is trying to juggle many things at once and it is not always possible to keep everything balanced in her life but she has some awesome people in her life supporting her .If you enjoy a story about new beginnings, witty laugh out loud moments , and characters you will care about then definitely pick this up you will not regret it. 
P.s I loved Stella's father, he was a very funny and a likeable character even if his reading tastes were a little off the wall.
