HAARLEM, Netherlands, July 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanneke Boot walks down memory lane to share her inspiring journey in “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” (published by AuthorHouse UK). Blending tones of seriousness and humor, she narrates her story that shows readers how physical disability is not — and never is — a hindrance to success.


Born with a muscle disease called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), Boot has experienced a host of challenges early in life. However, it did not stop her from moving forward. She realizes that anyone can overcome obstacles with humor and by exploiting one’s strongest talent. In her case, painting.


At 18, Boot discovered that painting with her mouth is easier for her than painting with her hands. She has found her calling in art and paints everything: views, landscapes, mills and portraits. Presented in diary format, she documents her feelings, thoughts and struggles, as well as how she turned her disability to possibility within the pages of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”


“I think my book will support a lot of readers, not only with (those with) disability, but also with depression for example,” the author states. “I experience high ups and deep down, but art and humor give me strength to overcome my fights.”


“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” offers insight into one woman’s challenges with a disability while giving inspiration to others who facing the same difficulties. The book is available for purchase at
