By My Side by Alice Peterson

     By My Side

One step can change everything …
Cass Brooks wishes she could turn back time. She’d go back to that morning and retrace her steps. Her boyfriend, Sean, would still be with her. Her mother wouldn’t be nagging her to plan a new future when all she wants is her old life back.
But when Ticket, the most loyal golden Labrador, bursts into Cass’s life, she dares to dream that she can be happy again, that maybe she has a future after all?
Charlie Bell is single. Why can’t he commit? Following his latest break up, he finds himself sitting next to a young woman called Cass on a flight to Colarado.
She is unlike any woman he’s met before…

I borrowed the summary from Alice Peterson's website. Ever since I read 'Another Alice' I've been a huge fan of her work. I really liked this book. Cass has a spinal cord injury which changes her life forever. She has to adjust to life in a wheelchair and that isn't easy. Her life changes drastically when she gets her dog Ticket and later once more when she meets Charlie. 
The best part of this book is the strength of the main character. Cass is such a wonderful person. She struggles, but every time she finds her way out. Becoming disabled doesn't mean life is over, it means life is different. That message has been made very clear in this book. Even when your situation looks bad, if you try you can achieve things. Because of that alone I would recommend this book, but that wouldn't do it justice. The writing is great and By My Side is a strong, romantic story with a very well executed plot.
