In this spirited, humorous story we follow Joan's adventures with the fears and frustrations of her 'handicap'. Stricken with polio as a child she heads to Dublin, hoping for a miracle. After three years and numerous operations she returns home to Limerick, changed. She walks with callipers and her absence from the poverty of home creates problems - Joan is a stranger there. She must learn to fit in. Her efforts to disguise her limp, attract boys and find acceptance sometimes bring comically disastrous results. In a quest for love and romance, she explores all avenues. Could she possibly find love by correspondence?
