This moving and inspiring memoir tells the story of a single, heart-wrenching year in one family's life in which a son sustains a severe brain injury, a daughter is stricken by a degenerative muscle condition, another son is suspended from school for drug use, and a grandfather passes away. With sensitivity and honesty, the mother recounts the harrowing days of stresses and ceaseless worry within the family and reveals the importance of familial bonds in overcoming tragedy. More than an account of heartache, this story serves as a resource for other families coping with debilitating injuries and unexpected trauma.
Lainie Cohen has more than 25 years of experience as an educator and a psychological consultant. She has been published in Canadian Jewish News, Globe and Mail, and Parchment. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.
