KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the moving story of Dr. Mary Verghese. She was a skilled surgeon in the treatment of leprosy and after becoming a paraplegic herself, she pioneered in new methods of rehabilitation of the handicapped in her native India. The dreadful accident which paralyzed her below the waist allowed her to become her own ""first patient"" in rehabilitation. After her treatment in America, she returned to India where she determinedly put her program into successful action. Although the presentation may be oversimple, the story will appeal.
