Sarah's Song Author:Janice A. Burns I am a white, married, twenty-four-year-old woman who lives in Yonkers, New York. My husband and I earn $67,000 a year, and spend most of it on vacations and home furnishings. In October, we will celebrate our third wedding anniversary; we have known each other for five years. We are HIV-positive. — Janice and William Burns met and courted in co... more »llege. Gliding to the music of love, they married six months after graduation, certain that the future was theirs. But HIV would force them to redefine the future. There would be no children, no daughter named Sarah. Based on the journal Janice started after their diagnoses, this is the searing, honest, and ultimately triumphant story of the path this young couple took together. In the face of death, they lived fully. Within indifferent and often frightened society, they found unlimited support from family and friends. In the midst of pain and loss, they found new ways to love. SARAH'S SONG sings movingly of a couple spurred to self-discovery by relentless tragedy...and is a hunting refrain of undying love in the time of AIDS.
"A story full of pain, but in which anger and bitterness are overridden by courage and tenderness."
