"Barbara Newborn takes the reader inside the body and mind of a 22 year old student teacher who suddenly and inexplicably has a stroke. Her book engages the reader in a journey to generate a new self. The author's amazing courage and faith in spite of harmful losses bears witness to the strength and power of the human spirit."
