Reviews

"[An] astonishing story... beautifully pieced together by journalist Richard Askwith... Unbreakable is...much more than simply the story of a horse race. It is also a compelling insight into the fading days of the Habsburg empire and the rise of the women's liberation movement between the two wars... exceptional...[and] heart-stopping reading which left me in tears" -- Clover Stroud * Daily Telegraph *
"[An] extraordinary story... Askwith's compelling book, as much about 20th-century history and women's equality as it is about racing, is a fitting tribute to a truly remarkable and courageous woman" -- Camilla Swift * Mail on Sunday *
"Askwith... writes beautifully... the book is meticulously researched and covers a myriad different themes" * Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder *
"[This] thoroughly researched, deeply moving account does justice to a remarkable life" -- John Cobb * Racing Post *
"This is a truly great story which has the reader rooting for a 41-year-old woman of whom most will have never heard" -- Peter Sharkey * The Post *
