In 1996 or before I heard a sermon about a girl born without a face. I believe it drew from a book that told of a girl, born without a face and abandoned by her parents, who was adopted by a nurse. Can anyone help me find this? There's a chance that it never was a book, that the sermon drew from a radio interview instead, but I really thought it was a book....

Thanks!

I don't think you mean this book, but I will suggest "Autobiography of a Face" by Lucy Grealey.  She had disfiguring cancer.  And I believe it was pre-1996.  But...don't think this is the one you'tre searching for.....
