What keeps a person's passion for life burning? What makes life worth living? The main character, Stella, lived in times that defined her life. The twentieth century bridged the periods of before reliable birth control and after, before women's liberation and after, before medical advancements and after. All times of transition are tumultuous. The participants don't know how change will affect them. They must swim in and ride the currents of events the best they can. This tale is the true-life novel of Stella's circumstances, her struggles, loves, hopes, mistakes and ambitions as she was swept away and coursed through her era. Not only is this book a good story, but readers with an interest in the teaching profession, art, mental illness, New York State, and twentieth century history will find a lot of information on those topics between these pages. The spectrum of events is broad covering a time of unimaginable change. The older generation lived it. Middle-aged readers experienced snatches and heard accounts, but the younger generation doesn't know what happened. This book is for them, to let them know about the lives of the people who have proceeded them, to fill them in on how we got from the old times to where we are today.
