Overview

Clara's Rib is the true story of a young girl coming of age in a tuberculosis hospital in the 1940s and '50s. Clara's story focuses mainly on her years growing up in 'the San' in Ottawa, Canada. Readers of all ages will be drawn into the evolving seasons of Clara's life of courage, faith, pranks, laughter, first love, despair and hope from the time she enters the San as a pre-teen until her departure as a young woman in her mid-twenties. Clara, the fourth eldest of ten children, was forced to exchange the daily camaraderie of her big, close-knit family for an even larger family in a hospital filled with TB patients. Discover why, when Clara left the San for the last time, one of her own ribs was packed in her suitcase.
