Marsha's Pick

I just finished our title for June and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  My husband picked it up from the library for me, then tells me he'd hate to read that story.  He had read the inside of the dust jacket, so I proceeded to do the same.  Then I was mad.  I like knowing nothing about a book when I first pick it up.  But I responded, this is the type of story I love to read.  And I did love reading it!  I'm a sucker for happy endings and this one got it...eventually (43 years later).  It was amazing to go inside the mind of a deaf man who is unable to communicate with others at all and into the mind of a developmentally delayed woman and into the mind of a widow turned superhero.  I'm so sad for all the people that were put away back then, but so happy for all the Martha's in the world.  I hope I would do exactly what she did.  Love- it is just all that matters!
