Dr. Rebecca Evans had an idyllic life. By day she was a consummate professional at her orthodontic practice on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. By evening she was a devoted wife and loving mother at her home in Oak Park. Rebecca had it all. October 1992 her life was shattered when she became the victim of a gang-land shooting. This book tells of Rebecca's heroic battle to overcome her physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Rebecca's courage, tenacity, and positive attitude will be an inspiration to others who are struggling through any type of rehabilitation. The book also stresses how family and friends supported and encouraged Rebecca. Rebecca's memory of her past life eluded her. With the help of family photo albums she learned about her childhood. Letters from Vienna, that she wrote 33 years ago, brought back the memory of her Junior college year in Vienna. The letters are detailed, interesting, and informative. They give the reader a deeper understandting of Rebecca's personality and add texture to the work as a whole. I found myself captivated by Rebecca's moving story, and I would recommend it not only for the handicapped, but the general public as well. Rebecca is a testament of the strength and durablity of the human spirit.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
