"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The founders of Toughlove, a national resource movement for parents and troubled teens, speak in alternating voices of a trauma that changed their lives. Phyllis York is confined to a wheelchair as the result of an accident that paralyzed her. Her partial recovery from total disability is an arduous, yet inspirational, process of ongoing rehabilitation described here by the authors in graphic detail. The book is as well the story of an enduring marriage, of the couple's grief and the forging of a new life adapting to one partner's disability. An indication of their resilience is provided by their advocacy of a telecommunications network for families of spinal cord injury victims. The Yorks, who live in Pennsylvania, also continue to conduct Toughlove seminars.
