It was 1952. Polio was on a rampage through the country, claiming young Vera as one more victim. Would it destroy her future? Would her life become useless? What could she contribute to society with severely impaired lungs, a twisted torso, and arms that dangled uselessly at her sides? But Vera does not succumb to the victim mentality. Surrounded by a godly, loving family, she determinedly fights to overcome the limitations of the polioravaged body and live as normally as possible.
In this book, author Rachael Lofgren has captured Vera`s spirit and life. As you journey with Vera, may you become just as inspired as those who walked with her in life.
