Turia Pitt’s remarkable story of survival and resilience is well known. Seven years after suffering devastating burns from a grass fire during an ultra marathon, Turia continues to be an inspirational figure both in Australia and across the globe.
The book takes us further behind the scenes of Turia’s grit, fierce determination and hope that she brings to all aspects of her life, even in the face of overwhelming challenges. Unmasked shows us experiences and relationships that have shaped her and the choices and attitudes that enable her to achieve inspirational goals.
But what I loved most was reading about the experience of the key people who supported her at every step—her husband Michael, her family and closest friends. While Turia is remarkable, this is also the story of the selfless, unrelenting commitment of those around her every step of the journey.
