Read full description of the books:
A loving family of four: handsome, successful doctor (Hank) who was also the doctor for the NYFD; beautiful and smart wife (Dorothy), a nurse; two daughters - Louise (the author), 4, and Annie, 6.
A vacation cottage on Cape Cod.
A faulty gas valve.
A flash fire that engulfed the parents.
After almost a year of living with loving relatives - and not understanding how their parents could still be alive and yet not visit or call - Louise and Annie finally return to far different parents than they remembered.
Burned beyond recognition - and with 4 more years of grafting surgeries to go - Dorothy must call up every ounce of strength and courage she can muster to keep her family going, return to her career - and to face the world. Hank, although burned a lot less severely, spirals into deep depression.
Louise writes with courage and honesty about her and her family's struggles and about the psychic scars she still bears today. I couldn't put this book down - read it in one day.
