This book is so touching, I honestly could not go to sleep a couple nights thinking about Julia after I finished the book. The story is so unbelieveable. If I had been her i'd of probably never made it in the places she was. God was with her every day. She was treated so badly and her family never told her what had happened to her. She could hear everything everyone said for years and years and no one bothered to ask her if she could hear, until many years later when a wonderful O.T. tec came to help her. Her family mostly left her and her husband acted like he didn't know who she was.Julia is a beautiful person and i dearly loved her story. One of the best i've read in quite awhile.
Thirty years ago Julia Tavalaro had a stroke that left her dead to the outside world, but inside her, life was burning more fiercely than anyone knew. This is the story of that life and her remarkable journey. - from the cover
Finally someone realized that although she couldn't speak and could only move her eyes, Julia was conscious, and a new life began for her. This book contains her story and even poetry, "written" by her.
