Synopsis:

From her childhood in New York City, to the turbulence of campus rebellion (at Vassar, of all places) in the 60s, to becoming the first Black female orthopedic surgeon in the United States, Claudia Thomas' life is an inspiration to all Black Americans, to all women, and in the end, to all people.

And that's just the warm-up!

From the author's Prologue:

"My life can be perceived as a series of three major storms. As a young adult, I rode out the squalls of my coming of age as a college student in the 1960s. [Chapter 3 has been adopted as part of the online history pproject at Vassar College]

"... While trapped in the jaws of a demonic hurricane, [the Category 5 Hurricane Hugo on the island of St. Thomas in 1989] I clung to the arms of a sofa and prayed repeatedly, 'God spare life! ...'

"... But as awful as Hugo was, it could not match the storm of the desperate illness that threatened my very life ... kidney disease so severe, only a transplant or dialysis would save my life."

How did she survive, indeed thrive and achieve great things, in the face of such dire hardships? Read her story.

About the Author:

The book tells of her life through the mid-1990s, but since her dramatic triumph over kidney cancer, Dr. Thomas has returned to practice medicine in Florida and teaching on the Johns Hopkins faculty in Baltimore. Among her activities, she finds joy in helping young people overcome obstacles and achieve success.
