In a span of 10 years, Gail Caldwell had lost her best friend, her mother and her dog. Making matters worse, the polio she'd contracted in her infancy had reduced her stride to a painful limp, and it seemed things would only get worse. Then, a routine doctor's visit revealed that a common surgery could restore her gait. She would soon discover how many other things it would restore: her sense of her self was not in decline, but powerful and potent.
