When Ginger Manley boarded a train from Innsbruck to Zurich in the summer of 1967, she had no idea of the adventure she was about to embark upon. Beside the railroad track in Feldkirch, Austria, Ginger, a registered nurse on the lam from a year of intensive trauma nursing, met John, an ex-fighter pilot and service-related arm amputee--and immediately disliked him. Two months later they married in what seemed a fairy-tale story but no happily-ever-after occurred for many years hence. Now at almost fifty years into their marriage, Ginger offers a sometimes stark and often humorous look into a marriage of three entities--herself, John, and that damn artificial arm of his. It is a story of inspiration, courage, and love--and of the importance of humor in triumphing over obstacles.
