Abstract: '...a remarkable story, movingly told in an effortless style, and not the least sentimental. An account of one woman's myth that forced her to come to terms with disturbingly visible scars, it asks us as readers to become more inward, more serious, about the psychological scars we may try to cover up. That the author is so revealing about her personal struggle without suggesting "poor little me" is a rare achievement.' --George R. Elder
