About the Book

What items would represent significant events in your life? Which ticket stubs, receipts, programs, pages of a letter or photographs would show delights and pains? These items are described as Mara grows up, influenced first by her grandmother Hazel, then by an elderly neighbor, Mrs. Dunzler, then by Pauline, the mother of a friend. The book concludes with sections devoted to Mara and her attendant, Rachel.

Mara learns to accept new challenges while she adapts to physical weaknesses. Eventually, she a begins a new MS treatment with unknown results.
