Head Over Heels by Sam and Jenny Bailey


Head Over Heels: A Story of Tragedy, Triumph and Romance in the Australian BushHead Over Heels: A Story of Tragedy, Triumph and Romance in the Australian Bush by Sam Bailey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderfully uplifting and inspirational story of one man’s determination to overcome his disability and work the land he loved so much. When most would have given up on life, Sam Bailey forged ahead, beat the odds, and showed “his old mate, Quadriplegia” how it’s done. Proof that determination and will power can beat anything, especially when you have the right people by your side to cheer you on. This was also an amazing story of how true love can see beyond limitations.

Head Over Heels

At the age of 19, a young farmer, Sam Bailey, miscalculated a bend in the road, overturned his ute and became a quadriplegic. After months of struggle, he learned how to resume his life as a farmer, running a sheep and cattle property in northwest New South Wales. then he met and fell in love with Jenny Black, an ABC Rural journalist, proposed to her on air, and the rest is history. Jenny tells Sam’s story in his own laconic, wry style. By turns romantic, funny and moving, it affirms the strength of iron-willed determination and the power of love.
