Paige is a free spirit who tries to live life to the full despite being badly handicapped by polio. Her daughter Diana longs to please her mother but is also wistful for a better life where she does not share the caring with grumpy carer Peacie. But when the future of the household is threatened, Diana makes a radical move that will forever change things.

It was a decent enough story but dragged a bit in places. Diana's attitude to Peacie did annoy me at times. I had hoped for a bit more action in the book though I did like the ending.

Thank you, chuckles! What a wonderful surprise...I love coming home to see a package in my mail basket, and I so was even more surprised to find not one but three books.
I am looking forward to reading all of them, and this one looks good.

My Review: This was a great read. The story was sad, but the mom tried to always find the positive and help others who needed it, even when it seemed she was the one who needed the most help. The ending was fantastic and I did shed a few tears.

Diana's attitude towards Peacie her mom (and her) caregiver seemed pretty obnoxious, but at the age of 13 it was easier to resent Peacie and treat her badly, than to do the same to her mom who was paralyzed from the neck down.

Favorite quote from the book: "All your life, you're going to run into situations where you have to decide whether or not to take a stand. Sometimes it just isn't worth it. But other times it is.... You have to honor what you know is true, or bit by bit, you die inside."

Journal Entry 11 by dabercro at Clinton, Utah USA on Wednesday, August 27, 2014
I enjoyed this book. Beyond what the previous journalers have written, I think that the underlying message is that we all have our own "handicaps" or loss of freedoms. Peacie's husband, LaRue, goes up north to march in the peace marches. As African American's during this time in our country's history, Peacie and LaRue don't have all the freedoms that the caucasians do. At first glance, Paige is the one with a handicap or loss of freedom, but Peacie and LaRue have their own loss of freedom because of who they are.
