In vivid detail, almost like a diary, Ms. Huston delivers the ultimate account in dealing with a mysterious pain that jeopardizes her relationships with doctors, friends, and most painfully, her family. Besides just citing the inexplicable pain that many, many others are contending with at this very moment, Ms. Huston sets out to save others from other such troubling personal sacrifices such as confusion, doubt and finally skepticism, the kind not just from others in the medical community but a skepticism about your own sanity.
This is simply a must read for anyone interested in why a seemingly doomed story of a girl in trouble turns out to be an inspiring, heart-warming truth of a family tightening their grip on hope and finding the next day to move forward into a new definition of success.
