With a Foreword by E. B. Strauss, M.A., D.M., F.R.C.P.
" The boy was born with hands that were uselessno radius or carpal bones-hands bent so as to be almost parallel with the arm. One side of his face was paralysed. The roof of his mouth was convex. A non-functioning tear duct sent a perpetual stream of water coursing down his face. That was over )6 years ago. Today the boy is at Downside School living a richer life than many who are not handicapped, and well on the way to a successful career. The story of a boy who refused to be sorry for himself, of the anguished struggle of his devoutly Catholic parents against seemingly insuperable odds is told in the
mother's book. . There are many moving incidents as when Anthony served his first Mass, or when for the first time he could lift his unencumbered arms to embrace his father. But there were many bitter disappointments in which the father and mother knew all the shrinkings of human weakness, but never lost their grip on God and Our Lady."
