Local writer Judy McFarlane tells us of her experience working with Grace, a young lady with Down Syndrome, who was determined to write a book. This memoir is a beautiful, honest portrayal of one woman’s struggle to overcome fears, doubts, and prejudice while helping another with her goals. It looks at what it means to be human. McFarlane’s personal memoir is intermixed with factual information about the troubled history of people with developmental disabilities. What an enlightening read! (submitted by MS)
