This memoir is a story as well as a study of sustained resilience. You'll not find slavery, poverty, or exile in the author's background. Her distress was not collective but individual, brought on by circumstances that fostered a sleep disorder and depression, which is perhaps harder to survive, yet so common in our society, though hardly acknowledged. Parental negligence, institutional abuse, sexism, addiction, a touch of incest, rejection within the frame of religious, educational, medical, and judicial institutions feature in this memoir covering the first 60 years of the 80-year-old author's life. The epilogue is a reminder that although adversity can always pounce when least expected, one can retain a sense of accomplishment and regain serenity.
