Connect 5 Friday – Disabled Protagonists



It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

I just finished a very enjoyable romance with a protagonist with only one leg. Lake lost her leg in a car crash and was able to overcome it and thrive. I realized that I had read a number of books with a main character who had lost a leg, although they were all men. (The most famous – Captain Ahab of Moby Dick fame, a book though, that I have not read.)
Here are 5 books with One-legged Protagonists

One by Jewel E. Ann – loved the characters, the humour, the moxy of Lake and the spot-on dialogue. Much to enjoy about this book (and a free ebook at that!)

Sea Glass Island by Sherryl Woods. Can Samantha help her  old crush Ethan? Enjoyable romance


lip serice6270250

Lip Service by Susan Mallery. Skye and Mitch have a past – can they overcome the road blocks? Another good romance from Mallery, second in her Lone Star Sisters series.

Dakota Home by Debbie Macomber. Heartwarming romance about Maggie and Jed.

Run by Eric Walters. This is a Middle Grade novel, that blends fact with fiction, featuring the Canadian hero, Terry Fox, along with the young protagonist Winston. An excellent read.

  1. Oh how interesting with all these books, many of them romances. If I think I know I have come across at least one but just escaping me at present. I remember being really interested in Douglas Bader the WW2 hero who lost both his legs.
