Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Morningstar's daughter, Misti, received massive head injuries in an automobile accident; her survival was in question for weeks, and for months head-injury rehabilitation specialists wondered how much Misti would actually recover. This book is Morningstar's story of that recovery in which she played a very active role. While she admits that she could afford excellent rehab care, the story is still compelling. Morningstar kept a daily journal during Misti's recovery, which enabled her to review her daughter's progress, however slight. She has written this book "to help others understand brain trauma and its consequences" and to encourage families to become a significant part of their loved one's recovery. The book keeps readers turning the pages. Recommended for consumer health and patient education collections, especially those with a strong emphasis in head-injury rehabilitation.Mary J.
