Over 70 years old, and with the help of writing, free at last Pegi began her long climb into the normal world. Pegi survived starvation, tuberculosis near deafness, the terror of mental institutions, and the horror of recognizing that she, too, had become an abusive mother. as a little child, she was forced to buy he mother's murdered babies and she repressed those memories until, as an adult, Pegi buried her own son.

And yet, when finally placed in foster care, torn from the only family she ever knew, forcible separated from the young brothers and sister she fought so hard to protect.
