I loved this book. It's a fascinating story about a woman who was struck with the polio virus while pregnant with her daughter, and gave birth in an iron lung. The daughter ends up having to help take care of her mother, since she is a quadriplegic. They live in the 50's, about the time that blacks were fighting for their rights, and they had a black caretaker who'd been with the family since the daughter's birth.. they go through a lot of trouble that happens in their lives. I wish the story had not ended, as it was a fresh, clean, touching story, with plenty of heart, and real, true feelings. This woman is my favorite author, as well !!
