She goes beyond the superficial, delving deep into those early years. She shares insights with hopes of exposing the cause of her speech impairment. The question as to why she faltered has remained a mystery — until now. Join her as she tells her story.

Carol Garvie is a member of the Comox Valley Writers Society and a member of the Federation of BC Writers. This is Carol’s first book, and she has published poems in Canadian Stories and Transition Magazine.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to support the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Carol’s story captures the purity and simplicity of 1945 – 1963, while also making us aware of disabilities and struggles that so often were not discussed with the same rigour as today.

Bravo Carol, I think your innovative approach and vulnerable sharing will inspire others.
