Joshua | 11 comments I'm looking for a biography about a disabled woman. She was disabled due to an illness as a child. I believe she was in a bed most of her childhood. She moved out to an island in Maine to live with her husband. I remember I read a celebrity gave out copies of this book to people going through difficult times in their lives.

Joshua, it sounds like you're looking for a specific book. So I moved your request to the Unsolved folder.

When did you hear about this book? Was the woman living in current times? Any idea who the celebrity was?

Joshua | 11 comments Lobstergirl,

I know it was early 1900's I think she died in the 30's-40's era. I think it was Barbra Streisand, but I am not sure. I remember it was someone who was a gay rights advocate. I read the article about why they gave this book to people and I found it really interesting. I wish I would have written down the title now. Thanks for your help.
